Weather Louisville KY

Weather Louisville KY - With the nasty weather heading our way, you can expect treacherous road conditions. Crews are hauling salt from the reserve at the Louisville Mega Cavern to maintenance facilities.

6500 tons of salt were spread onto roadways earlier this week, and there's still a lot of salt residue left on the roads. That means pre-treating the roads with brine isn't necessary.

2400 miles of state-maintained highways will be cleared in the Louisville area. 166 trucks will salt and plow the roadways.

Motorists should be careful around plows and salt trucks -- they travel at a slower speed, and snow plows can cause visibility problems.

Other tips for staying safe -- carry a cell phone, keep your gas tank at least two-thirds full to prevent fuel line freezing, and prepare for lengthy delays on the roadway. Also, carry jumper cables, reflectors, ice scraper, blankets, food, and a first aid kit.
