This is the latest information on road conditions in Kentucky from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

UPDATE 8:41 p.m. 

Keith Todd says Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews in District 1 continue to do battle with snow drifts.  In many locations crews can return every few hours to plow through them.  However, there are several locations where the drifts have grown to 4 and 5 feet deep.  While drifting snow is a widespread problem, the biggest issue has generally been at low traffic locations in the district's southern counties.

Due to the size of some drifts in Graves County, Todd says KYTC is forced to close highways at the following locations:

KY 339 between KY 303 and US 45

KY 384 at 2mm

KY 944 entire route

All of these highways have snow drifts in the 4 to 5 foot range.

LAST UPDATE at 4:00 a.m.

Keith Todd with the Transportation Cabinet says roads are hazardous and that many plows have gone off the roads due to how slick they are.

This photo of a plow was submitted to us by Max Parrish. He said the plow was on Highway 121 North in Calloway County.

The wind is also picking up which is reducing visibility. 

Snow drifts are expected to form throughout the day.

Everyone is encouraged to stay home today so that crews can work on clearing the roads.
