  • Highway Crews Prepared for Long Cold WeekHighway Crews Prepared for Long Cold Week

    The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 1 Snow Ice Team has been evaluating progress on Monday and working on plans for Tuesday. Crews plan to run as late as possible in the night until they reach their federally mandated 16-hour limit, plowing and spreading salt as temperatures drop. Where possible, county crews will keep a small crew available overnight to respond to emergencies and help police agencies when needed. Crews will then go back to full-staffing early on Tuesday to resume ice-fighting efforts. If you're driving overnight, please remember that ice-melting chemicals become inactivebelow 15 degrees, so little can be done to improve driving conditions. Drifting snow is also a concern during the overnight hours for the next few days. With a limited number of plows out in late-night hours, drivers should know that it's possible that they may encounter drifts. Officials remind everyone that any minor car problem could become life-threatening to a driver with conditions as they are and temperatures in single digits. A flat tire, dead battery or mechanical problem during a simple trip to the grocery could become very dangerous situation. Please plan ahead and have adequate clothing and provisions - just in case. Keep cell phones charged and let family or friends know where you're going and the route you're taking. Update loved ones with your location every now and then. Finally, KYTC crews request that if you are out on the road, even during daylight, to always drive with your headlights on. This help other drivers and those operating snow plows to see you through the blowing snow. A state law requires you to turn on your headlights anytime it is raining or snowing enough to require the use of your windshield wipers.

  • Ramp onto Purchase Parkway Blocked Until TuesdayRamp onto Purchase Parkway Blocked Until Tuesday

    A heavily used ramp at Purchase Parkway is blocked, and will be until sometime Tuesday. According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, a truck loaded with equipment is stuck in the northbound US 45 Connector ramp to the Purchase Parkway at Mayfield. This is the lane that connects US Highway 45 to the northbound lanes of the Parkway at exit 21. A wrecker capable of removing the truck will not be available until sometime Tuesday morning, so this connector ramp will be blocked for up to 12 hours. The suggested detour is via US Highway 45-Business, which goes through Mayfield. Area 911 call centers have indicated they have had dozens of calls about crashes and vehicles running off the road in the last couple of hours. The wait for an available tow truck is likely to be lengthy. Keith Todd of KYTC said, "With another 2 to 4 inches of snow expected before the snow ends around midnight, driving conditions are going to continue to deteriorate, especially as temperatures are expected to plummet after the snow ends. Please avoid unnecessary travel."
