KYTC District 7 forces worked overnight and throughout this morning clearing state roadways. Snow showers briefly subsided yesterday and then returned during evening/overnight hours. Weather conditions are monitored closely by the District 7 office. Crews plowed, spot treated, and worked to ensure that routes were in the best possible condition for Monday morning.
The following measures can assist with keeping motorists safe and prepared:
- Place yourself in emergency mode.
- Pay attention to weather advisories — weather will impact your commute on some level.
- Travel only as necessary during major snow events. It’s better to stay at home than stranded on the road.
- Maintain a safe distance from snowplows and other heavy highway equipment.
- Do not pass snowplows on the shoulder.
- Allow time for a slower commute.
- Winterize your vehicles.
- Supply your vehicles with blankets, flash light and an emergency supply kit.
- Check traffic conditions before you travel.
- Eliminate distractions (examples; operating a phone and eating) while driving.
- Cooperate with the expectations of the Quick Clearance law, which requires drivers to move vehicles to the shoulder in the event of a non-injury crash.
