LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The opening of the Ohio River bridges means more snow plows are needed this year. 

Four extra plows will help cover the newly-constructed roads.

Two additional trucks will take care of the new section of the Gene Snyder Freeway, through the tunnels and all the way through the Harrod's Creek Bridge.

The new Lewis and Clark Bridge itself will be taken care of by the Indiana Department of Transportation. INDOT officials are reminding drivers to take it slow and leave space for the plows.
