Edmonson County School Superintendent Patrick Waddell has given an update on the latest road conditions for county school bus routes. He said workers have been monitoring roads all day and will continue to do so into the night.
He said that crews will be out again starting at 3am in the morning to determine if school routes will be safe enough for travel tomorrow.
"As of right now, we have 33 bus turnarounds that are not usable, due to icy conditions," he said. "We'll make a decision around 6am to determine whether to cancel, or to have a one or two-hour delay."
He also added that he understands the frustrations of those who see the majority of the roads clear and question the cancellation of schools, but reiterated that secondary roads, turnarounds, and parking lots factor into the decision much more than the public might recognize.
Waddell said the "One Call" will also be implemented in case of cancellation or delay.
