With the recent Snow and Ice, the entirety of south-central Kentucky has seen it’s share of hazardous road conditions.  Road crews have been out in full force, sometimes working around the clock, to make the roads safe to drive on.  Where many people get confused is knowing whether they are on a state road, county road, or city road and who is responsible for clearing the roads of ice and snow as Wes Watt, Public Information Officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3 explains…

For state roads, when ice and snow occurs there are three priority levels; levels A, B, and C.  Level A are the interstates, parkways, and major arteries.  Level B are State Highways with less travel.  Level C are the rural and low volume routes.  Watt tells WCLU News that the past few days they have been out working on A and B roads, but hope to work on Level C roads beginning today.

One area of Barren County that receives the most confusion is magisterial district 6 which includes Cave City, Park City, I-65, and many rural routes.  With two municipalities in his district, Magistrate Chris Steward tells WCLU News that it is a matter of the law for residents of Cave City and Park City who live on a county or state road.

Steward said he sympathizes with citizens who live on city streets but pay the same county taxes as other Barren Countians.
