Transportation Cabinet sets snow and ice removal priorities for 2015-16 winter season in District 10
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has established priority routes for snow and ice removal for the upcoming winter season in Estill County and the other nine counties that make up the Department of Highways District 10.
Snow routes for Estill County are as follows:
Priority A routes are KY 52, KY 82, KY 1571 and portions of KY 89 and KY 499 which include major through routes and are those most heavily traveled in each county. They include parkways and other major arterial routes. Under normal winter weather conditions, the goal is for non-Interstate Priority A routes to be plowed and treated within two hours of the beginning of the storm, with the process repeated every two hours.
Priority B routes include the remainder of KY 89, KY 213, portions of KY 594 and KY 851, KY 1457 and KY 1705 which are important but lesser traveled routes in each county. The goal for plowing and treating these highways is every four hours.
Other state-maintained roads not fitting into either of the two higher categories fall into Priority C. The goal for these roads is to plow them at least once every eight hours, and to treat problem areas in the same time span. In some cases, Priority C routes may not be completely treated until other higher priority routes are cleared.
These turnaround times are goals established in Transportation Cabinet policy, but individual circumstances relating to each weather event may impact whether or not these goals are achieved. Plowing and treating schedules may be impacted by the severity of the storm, mechanical breakdowns, the amount of salt available or other factors. During light snowfalls, crews may be able to treat all roads within a county more rapidly. Heavier snows, or varying weather conditions in different areas of each county, may impact this schedule.
District 10 begins the winter weather season with more than 20,000 tons of salt and nearly 74,000 gallons of liquid calcium chloride on hand. More salt is available from the Transportation Cabinet’s reserve stockpile in Louisville or from vendors if needed.
Again this year, District 10 will use Twitter and Facebook to provide updates on road conditions when weather-related emergencies occur. These social media outlets are available on home computers and Internet-enabled smartphones and tablets.
Motorists may also dial 511 to hear traffic and travel information. Signs have been erected throughout the 10 counties of District 10 to promote the 511 service. Road condition reports will also be available on the Waze app for smartphones and tablets.
