#WinterStormIzzy has brought heavy snow & hazardous driving conditions to many areas of KY, especially Central KY & the corridors of southern I75 & eastern I64. Plows will stay on the roads working, but in extended periods of precipitation, snow can quickly pile up behind plows.
Slick driving conditions are present in areas of our eastern counties. Crews from Allen, Barren, Metcalfe and Monroe Counties are still out treating roads. Please use caution if out driving tonight as temps dip below freezing. #kywx
UPDATE (6:28 p.m.)
Both lanes are now OPEN.
I-75 southbound in Laurel County is blocked at mile point 47. Hazardous road conditions have caused a traffic backup, which currently extends beyond mile point 49. Estimated Duration is currently unknown.
🚨ALERT: I-75 Southbound Laurel Co🚨
"Due to tractor trailers/vehicles not able to get up the hill at mile marker 47, the interstate is closed while Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews scrape/salt the road. Expect Delays!" -Tpr. Scottie Pennington, Post 11 London
#KYTCSnowfighters are out in full force treating & plowing state routes. Roadways are slick & hazardous in many places. Please stay home and avoid nonessential travel. #kywx
#kywx Things got slick in a hurry this afternoon. Crews treated icy roads this morning and then got a short break, but the rain switched to snow later in the day and continues to come down at a quick clip. This is the Mountain Parkway at the Powell/Wolfe line. Stay home tonight.
With light to heavy snow being reported throughout District 11, #snowfighters continue to plow, treat, and patrol the roadways as needed. Please avoid travel if possible. If you have to be out, continue to use extreme caution. Please take it slow!
Plows are down across the district, but with fast-falling heavy snowfall roads are quickly covering back once plowed. Please avoid travel if possible. If you have to be out, use extreme caution. Please take it slow!
Swift changeover to snow, south to north. Here’South I-64 at KY 180 Exit 133 near Morehead. Plows, salt trucks out there, but fast-falling heavy snow will cover roads quickly. Be ready. #kywx
A beam for the bridge on Frogtown Rd/KY 608 over I-75 will be replaced.
