Louisville Public Works crews brining roads in expectation of winter weather

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Louisville crews have been brining roads ahead of Tuesday night's expected light snow.

WDRB Chief Meteorologist Marc Weinberg says a weather front could hit Louisville with around an inch of snow. "The snow combined with falling temps will lead to a few slick roads," Weinberg said in his evening forecast. 

Cold, arctic air will move into the area following tonight's snow and Marc Weinberg says to expect more active weather next weekend. You can see a full, updated forecast here.

Public Works started brining roads Monday night and will keep brining through Tuesday evening. It's been a harsh winter, with many cities experiencing a shortage of salt -- but Louisville officials aren't worried about a shortage just yet.

"We're in good shape with that," said Metro Public Works spokesperson Harold Adams. "We still have 21,000 tons of salt on-hand, including 6,000 in our garage facilities and another 15,000 in reserve."

As with any winter weather event, crews will focus on the most heavily traveled streets.
