Lexington Salt Trucks Treating Roads To Avoid Icy Morning Commute

Lexington Salt Trucks Treating Roads To Avoid Icy Morning Commute

Wednesday's rain and light snow could turn into Thursday morning ice, so city salt trucks are treating roads across Fayette County.
     Lexington-Fayette County Snow Plow drivers were busy Wednesday evening patrolling city streets around the clock for ice and slick conditions.

     Although there wasn't much snow sticking to the ground the main concern was the wet conditions turning icy with temperatures dropping below freezing Wednesday night.

     The plows are divided into sections of the city to cover. Most crews working a section say when there's snow or ice on the roads it takes them about four to five hours to complete their run.

     Crews say they'll spend all night working the roads making sure they're safe for drivers in the morning.
