Crews In Louisville Keep Roads Clean

Road crews in Louisville are pounding the pavement hoping to clear the road of ice.

Temperatures rose Saturday afternoon and melted some of the snowfall. More than 60 trucks are on call Saturday if the melted snow freezes up on the roads.

"Most of the lanes are just wet. We're working on plowing back our shoulders on each side, to be sure when it starts to melt, that it doesn't run back out in the roadway and freeze again," says Tom Wright with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

The trucks will clear the way for the salt which is the only real defense against the ice. The city had salt shortage problems in the past but this year they have more than 12,000 tons of salt to help keep drivers safe.
