KENTUCKY (KFVS) -

Crews will be pre-treating roads in Kentucky beginning around 7 a.m. Thursday before a round of harsh weather moves in.

The KY Transportation Cabinet District 1 highway crews will be pre-treating along Interstates and parkways.

Treatment will begin with the Super Tanker along I-24 between the Ohio River Bridge at the Kentucky-Illinois State Line to about the 74 mile-marker near the Trigg-Christian County Line.  Then it will move on to I-69 in Lyon County and then the Purchase Parkway.

Individual counties will have one or two trucks out pre-treating bridges, overpasses, and potential trouble spots through the day.

Smaller tanker trucks run at speeds around 45 to 50 miles-per-hour and motorists are advised to slow down and use caution when encountering a brine spray truck.

If you have to go to work on Friday morning we suggest you consider spending the night nearer your workplace to help minimize travel on Friday morning.
