Metro Louisville set to announce changes for the city's snow route

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville held a special meeting Wednesday for citizens to find out about changes to the area's snow route plan.

Louisville metro says it has 40,000 tons of salt ready to go for snow season. The city used 41,000 tons in 22 winter storms last year and is paying higher prices for salt this year.

Metro government crews apply brine and plow 2,700 miles of thoroughfares and connectors, but not most residential streets.

"Generally we do major routes and the connector routes, and we do the TARC routes and the streets surrounding the schools and hospitals and major employers," Metro Public Works spokesperson Harold Adams said.

Officials are also asking for input on which roads citizens want treated.

Crews treat and clear more than 2,700 miles of roads covering Louisville's 386 square miles.

The city recently revised its snow route plan for the winter.

It should have details online as soon as Monday.
