The Kentucky Transportation Center has reported around $27 million dollars has been spent to get snow and ice off the roadways, and we're halfway through the Winter season.

The amount comes from several different factors, including labor, equipment, materials, and contractors.

KYTC said its nearly 2,000-member workforce has strived to keep over 60,000 lane miles of roads clear, with the help of 1,065 snowplows and 382 contracted snowplow trucks.

They said more than 220,000 tons of salt have been used so far, compared to 85,000 tons used this time last year.

KYTC announced they are ready for the remainder of the season, with over 150,000 tons of salt remaining.
