City, State Crews Clearing Roads

Lousville Mayor Jerry Abramson says there have been no major problems in the wake of the latest winter storm to move across the region.

Abramson says road crews were out ahead of the snowfall early Monday and will continue to target slick roads in the aftermath.

This is the seventh winter weather event of the season for Public Works crews, but the mayor says there’s plenty of road salt stored away.

“Six or seven thousand tons are in the domes, on top of the ground. Twenty-five thousand tons are underneath the zoo in the undergound, we have not had to tap the underground,” he said.

Abramson says snow removal expenses such as overtime and materials are building up, but are still within the budget.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials say their crews continue to clear interstates and other roads that are the state’s responsibility.
