SOMERSET, Ky. (Jan. 7, 2022) - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 8 highway crews continue their efforts to clear roadways across the district.
Sunshine and repeated plowing has helped to improve conditions along main routes. Crews will continue throughout the night to clear routes after Thursday’s winter storm dumped 5-8 inches of snow across the region.
Motorists are still advised to avoid travel if possible. Many routes still remain completely covered and roadways that have become clear will likely refreeze into the evening and overnight hours creating icy conditions. If you must travel slow down, leave plenty of space between vehicles and give yourself extra time to reach your destination.
