FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky transportation officials say snowplows are operating on 12-hour shifts to clear roads in the northeast part of the commonwealth.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Allen Blair said in a news release Monday morning that highways were partly to mostly snow-covered in Bath, Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Nicholas and Rowan counties. Crews were plowing and salting state roads.

The transportation cabinet cautions against using cruise control on slippery roads and notes more distance is needed to stop on slick highways.

The National Weather Service had issued a winter weather advisory for much of central, northern and eastern Kentucky. Several schools around the state were closed or delayed classes.
