Crews pre-treating roads in central KY for expected snow
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – State road crews have been pre-treating bridges, overpasses and portions of routes today in central Kentucky counties.
The pre-treatment of “salt brine” assists with melting and preventing ice from forming on road surfaces. The “salt-brine” is a salt water type treatment. This procedure is a very low cost pro-active approach to address roadway safety concerns.
The National Weather Service is forecasting snow showers overnight Friday with accumulation through Saturday evening. Motorists should always use extra caution when driving in cold and wet weather. Bridges and overpasses typically freeze before surface-level roadways.
