Road crews are out and about treating roads following a bout of winter weather in the local area.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Public Information Officer Keith Todd says that crews are spot treating roads throughout Caldwell, Christian, and Hopkins counties to aid with snow and ice melt.
Officer Todd says that road temperatures in Caldwell County, as of 10AM, are 31 degrees, with air temperatures around 30 degrees. Five trucks have been deployed to spot treat state highways within the county. Currently roads are wet but clear.
In Christian County road temperatures are around 36 degrees and four trucks have been deployed to spot treat Pennyrile Parkway and bridges along state highways within the county.
In Hopkins roads are clear and crews are on standby.
County crews in Caldwell and city crews in Princeton are out and about spot treating roads throughout the area, pouring brine to help any slick spots melt as temperatures rise this afternoon.
The KYTC wants to remind motorists to continue to use caution anytime road surfaces remain wet and temperatures are at or below freezing and to use caution when they come upon crews working to clear roads.
