Slick streets make for tough traffic in NKY | Transportation
COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Traffic in Northern Kentucky was a big problem Monday afternoon as highways turned slippery due to snowfall and temperatures. Here's what the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is saying about the problems and about Tuesday morning's commute:
The KYTC District 6 Office reports that crews in Bracken, Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Gallatin, Grant, Harrison, Kenton, Owen, Pendleton and Robertson Counties will be out treating and patrolling state roads and interstates throughout the night to prepare for the Tuesday morning commute.
Several unexpected snow squalls hit late this morning and afternoon causing some black ice and snow covered roads in several areas. I-75 SB in Grant County was closed for several hours this afternoon while crews cleared up a multi - vehicle accident near the 156 mile marker as well as other areas along I-75, I-71 and I-275 saw several backups due to the conditions. State crews were called in to treat roadways, but in many areas they were delayed by the backups as well. State crews reacted as quickly as they could to the problem areas.
All the District 6 counties will have approximately 60 salt trucks monitoring and treating roadways to make sure they are in the best possible condition for the morning
