Icy Roads Make For Troublesome Travel Monday

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The road conditions across the tri-state are deteriorating as freezing rain continues to fall Monday morning.

A layer of ice is covering the area after a wintry mix of precipitation overnight. A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for our entire listening area until 2:00 p.m.

Slick road conditions have prompted most area schools to close. Some are attempting to go on delays. Lawrenceburg Community Schools are on a two-hour delay as of 6:00 a.m., but superintendent Karl Galey said he would be reevaluating throughout the morning.

Road crews are out treating the roads. The Indiana Department of Transportation and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says each had full call-outs of crews to begin treating roads late Sunday and overnight.

Still, many area roads are slick. There is a travel advisory in Franklin County. Slide-offs were reported on Interstate 275 in Boone County. If you have road condition reports to share, call us at (812) 537-9724.

After spending the past couple weeks below-freezing, Monday will bring a high of 39. Precipitation should cease later in the morning.
