Some crews able to begin clearing secondary routes

FRANKFORT, Ky.– On Day 2 of a winter storm that left the Commonwealth in deep snow and a deep freeze, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet road crews continued plowing to keep interstates and other main routes open.

Crews in some areas were able to launch into cleanup work – clearing intersections, turn lanes and crossovers – and begin tending to secondary routes.

Gov. Steve Beshear on Monday declared a statewide emergency because of the storm, which blanketed the Bluegrass State with up to a foot of snow. It fell at such a rate that plowed roadways quickly became covered again.
