Kentuckiana prepares for winter weather

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A blizzard warning has been issued for parts of our area and crews spent Christmas preparing for the storm.

INDOT's trucks hit the road at midnight. 15 crews are on the streets near Seymour, monitoring the weather.

"Our trucks will be out there loaded with salt and patrolling and ready for those hazardous conditions when they arise," said Greg Prince, INDOT spokesperson.

Kentucky's crews are on stand-by.

They could not treat the roads ahead of time because of the rain, but people are ready to tackle the winter weather that's ahead.

"All of our trucks were inspected earlier in the fall they've all been checked over they're ready to go. We've got 42,000 tons of salt on hand for this 8 county area we're ready to handle whatever is thrown their way," said Andrea Clifford, a spokesperson for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

She says If you have to travel, take precaution. Transportation departments recommend taking it slow and watch out for their plow trucks
