UPDATE: The crash on US 41 near the 19 mile marker at the Wolf Hills Road intersection that included one of our salt trucks has cleared. This should mean traffic is or will be moving again on the US 41 Twin Bridges between Henderson and Evansville.
Traffic snarls in the Henderson area, especially along the US 41 North Strip at Henderson, have severely hampered the ability to spread salt on icy highways.
Salt trucks have made their way across the US 41 Twin Bridges. However, motorists should continue to use extreme caution as icy conditions are likely to continue until temps rise above freezing long enough to thaw things out.
According to the Kentucky State Police, there are reports of several crashes this morning due to icy conditions, including a KYTC salt truck that is off the road.
Both the northbound and southbound lanes of the US 41 Twin Bridges between Henderson and Evansville are blocked at this time.
Additional trucks have been dispatched to the bridges, but traffic snarls are hampering efforts to spread salt in the area.
Both the on and off ramps at the Audubon Parkway and US 41 Interchange at Henderson are blocked at this time.
Experts recommend taking your time, especially on bridges and overpasses, and avoiding getting out on the roads altogether until after 9 a.m. if possible when the temperatures have had a chance to increase.
