INDOT salt trucks hit the streets overnight

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, KY (WAVE) – About 9:00 p.m. Friday night, the consistent rain-snow mix turned into large snow flakes. It has been falling since about 7:00 p.m. and by 11 p.m. it was starting to stick. At the Falls City INDOT substation trucks have been filling up and gearing up for a long night ahead.

As of 11:00 p.m., motorists were not having any problems getting around, but as the night goes on officials expect travel conditions to get worse.

INDOT spokesman Greg Prince says they are planning for 3 to 6 inches of snow in the Southern Indiana district. Prince expects the north eastern part of the district to get the most accumulation.

Prince says it is a blessing in disguise that the winter weather is happening while students are not in school and as we head into the weekend, hoping that will keep the traffic light.

Prince wants to remind drivers to take their time if they have to get out overnight or Saturday morning.
