Kentucky Transportation Cabinet/Google Maps

Road Conditions:
The Kentucky State Police say the site of a multi-vehicle accident involving semi trucks on I-24 has been cleared. Both lanes are now open between KY-917 and the Livingston/Lyon County line. Traffic is moving slowly through the site of the crash.

Many area roads are completely covered with packed snow. Transportation officials recommend only getting out on the roads if absolutely necessary. If you do get out today, give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. Remember to buckle up, turn on your headlights, and drive slowly. Slow down early when coming to intersections and leave plenty of stopping room ahead of cars in front of you.
