Winter Weather Moving In
As winter weather moves into the Bluegrass, roads are getting dangerous.
Sunday night, Man O’ War Blvd. was wet from the day’s rain, getting slushy and slick but that wasn’t stopping many cars from zooming down the road.
Many cars were also sliding up to the stop light at Sir Barton Way.
Police said there were wrecks all evening due to these slick roads.
Sleet covered Bryan Station and Hume Roads early Sunday evening when a man drove into an electrical pole.
Police said he’s OK but the power line was cut in half and the roads closed.
Road crews said they’ve been monitoring the weather all day.
They said they weren’t able to pre-treat streets because the rain would wash everything away. They said once they can put down salt it should work since temperatures won’t be in the single digits like last week.
“Where it dropped down below zero, that was a challenge then and my last forecast was around 28-29 degrees low tonight so that’s going to help us tremendously,” said Albert Miller with Streets and Roads.
Miller said if you’re driving the speed limit you’re going too fast. He recommends driving about ten miles under the speed limit.
