Lexington road crews are working around the clock to clear roads of snow and ice.

Officials say as of Monday afternoon, many of the main roadways in town have been cleared. They say they're still working on clearing side and rural roads throughout the county.

Mayor Jim Gray reported that there were only 17 non-injury accidents and two injury accidents throughout Monday.

Gray also said the city has plenty of salt and that the road department has ordered 300 extra tons.

Many roads appeared unplowed as of Monday morning. City officials say the large amount of snow overnight kept the roads from being cleared early Monday.

Road crews say that as the sun has come out and temperatures risen, the snow has melted helping them make progress.

Temperatures are expected to drop Monday night which could lead to icy road conditions Tuesday morning.

Crews will stay working on the roads through the overnight hours.
