(LEX 18) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) shares the public should be aware of black ice due to the declining temperatures.
"Black ice can form on previously treated surfaces --- including sidewalks and roadways. Black ice is water that refreezes. In addition, areas that do not receive regular sunlight can refreeze and remain frozen for a period of time."
District 7 of KYTC's maintenance crews are retreating ramps to I-75 Northbound and Southbound between exit 115 (Newtown Pike) to exit 104 (Athens Boonesborough Road).
