Louisville road crews working hard to keep roadways safe

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Road crews in Louisville worked hard Friday to make sure the roadways remained safe.

A spokesman with Metro Public Works tells WDRB News that crews came in Friday at 2 a.m. and began treating roads at 4 a.m.

Harold Adams says they have been on alert all week, and continue to monitor the roadways and treat them as needed.  He says they have 160 vehicles helping to treat the roads, 265 people, and more than 35,000 tons of salt.

But although he says the city is ready, he is reminding drivers to be careful:  "The best advice is if you don't have to drive in this stuff, don't do it. If you do decide that you have to drive, be prepared and have some windshield washer and fluid, because you will need it."

And, of course, allow for extra time if you'll be out and about.

TRIMARC officials say they have signs up that are telling drivers also to watch out for the salt trucks.

The Freeway Safety Patrol is also out, helping drivers that may need any kind of assistance.
