City prepares for possible inclement weather this weekend

Lexington’s Divisions of Streets & Roads and Water Quality are pre-treating hills and bridges ahead of the snow predicted for Saturday afternoon. If weather conditions merit, the city’s Snow Plan will be implemented.

“We’re ready for snow,” Mayor Jim Gray said. “We’ve got a barn full of salt, and our crews are already on the streets pre-treating.”

Streets & Roads’ on-call staff will handle “slick” calls and spot response for all areas as needed.

The Office of Homelessness Prevention & Intervention weather plan is activated and will remain in effect through Dec. 14. The plan is activated anytime the temperature is expected to fall below 32 degrees so people experiencing homelessness in Lexington have warm, secure shelter. Anyone wishing to report someone who may need a ride to shelter can call or text the Catholic Action Center’s Compassionate Caravan at (859) 913-0038.
