10:00 a.m.: Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Crews are Responding to “Spotty” Snowfall

Highway crews across Kentucky’s 12 westernmost counties were prepared to respond to snow in the forecast for early today. So far, the snow has been spotty.

Crews are out treating bridges, overpasses, and other potential trouble spots in Ballard, Carlisle, Hickman, Lyon, and Fulton Counties. As an example of the spotty nature of the snow, Graves County has had only flurries to this point.

Our main concern is that as temperatures drop through the day and high winds help chill roadway surface temperatures there will be a potential for slick spots to develop fairly quickly. Crews are prepared to operate 24/7 as required over the next few days as temperatures are expected to drop into the 20’s.

Motorists are asked to do their part by reducing their driving speed to meet localized weather conditions. Drivers are advised to monitor area news media outlets for weather updates, particularly through the evening hours.

The saga began in 2007. Now, after a legal battle, planning, and finally, construction, the Fancy Farm Elementary school has been completed. The new building will house classes for students this fall. Here’s the freshest photo.
