LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A winter weather advisory is in effect today, and crews are standing by to make sure the roads are safe.
Public Works spokesperson, Lindsay English, say the city still has plenty of salt in reserve to last through the winter.
"The roads are looking pretty coated, pretty salty right now, so that will definitely help. We won't need to go ahead and pre treat for whatever is coming in this weekend. That coating will help. Once the snow starts to fall, it won't adhere to the roadway and cause any slick spots or icy patches like an untreated road could," explained English.
During snowfalls earlier this week, the state used about 3500 tons of salt. Around a quarter of that was used on interstates passing through Jefferson County.
State and city officials say they are ahead of the game in making sure that roads are clear for the community.
