MADISONVILLE, Ky. (Feb. 18, 2021) – KYTC District 2 Snow Fighters continue to take care of state highways, all 3,260 miles. That is roughly the equivalent of driving from Portland, Oregon to Miami, Florida within District 2. Crews continue preparing and maintaining equipment and district management teams continue accessing and adjusting salt inventories to maximize effectiveness and efficiency.

Motorists can anticipate mostly clear A routes while B and C routes remain covered but passable. Motorists should anticipate slick spots on bridges, overpasses, and ramps. 

Priority A routes include critical state routes and those most heavily traveled, such as interstates and main roads between counties or to hospitals, which receive the highest priority for snow-clearing efforts. Priority B and C routes include other important but lesser-traveled state routes.

The National Weather Service has forecasted a 60% chance of snow today with a possible accumulation of less than an inch.  

Plan your route during winter weather:

  • access links and apps for the latest traffic and travel information
  • check weather reports and adjust your starting time
  • let others know when to expect you
