LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Roads in metro Louisville are being described as "wet, spotty and slushy.
Crews started treating the roads before most of you even woke up this morning, the snow hit right in the middle of morning rush hour.
"They are pretty covered but, if you take your time and know what you are doing you can get where you want to get," said Louisville driver Josh Salmon.
City salt trucks rolled out since 5:30 Monday morning in Metro Louisville.
"Our main focus for our crews always is the main thoroughfares to keep the city moving," said the Mayor's spokesperson Lindsay English. "It's about 1300 miles across the city in our snow routes."
City crews dumped more than 1200 tons of salt.
"We just want people to make sure that they are taking it easy on their neighborhood roads and secondary roads that we don't treat," said English.
The main concern right now for both metro and state road crews is that the snow hasn't stopped falling.
"The interstate system is in pretty good shape, we hope to keep it that way," said KY Transportation Cabinet Spokesperson Andrea Clifford. "We don't know how much snow we are predicting to get hopefully it will be a light band and not anything heavy like this morning."
With continued snow in the forecast, crews expect to be salting and plowing highways throughout the evening in many areas. State trucks were spotted waiting along side of the road...ready to go.
"It's not going to be above freezing today we always have that potential for refreezing fortunately temps are going to be in the upper 20's around 30 and the pavement temps will be up as well and that will help to keep the salt working" said Clifford.
