In response to heavy snows and bitter cold across the Commonwealth in the past 12 hours, Gov. Steve Beshear declared a statewide emergency to allow local officials immediate access to state resources to assist in public safety and recovery efforts.
Northbound traffic continues to be blocked on Interstate 65 today. Cleanup of oil and diesel from this morning's semi crash on Green River Bridge is expected to last into the early afternoon hours. Contaminated snow also must be removed from the area to prevent slick hazards when it eventually melts.
