Anyone travelled these roads over the past 24 hours or so and can give me an update? The DOT website lists travel as "difficult" through these areas.

I'm driving up from Tennessee across this area (Paducah) on my way to Saint Louis and onward on the 13th...

Haven't been on those roads, but my experience with DOT road conditions in general has been that "difficult" means there might be some ice/snow but its still drive-able. Just take your time, pay attention and be careful and you'll be fine. Of course, if you're not driving through until the 13th, you shouldn't have any problems anyway; roads should be clear by then.

I'm in Trigg County, that you go through on your way to Paducah. The roads around here haven't been bad at all. My wife drove to Hopkinsville on 68/80 at 10 this morning and had absolutely no trouble. And if 68/80 is clear then I-24 is clear. 24 has higher priority to be cleared before any others. The southern part didn't get but maybe an inch, but a little more towards Paducah. If you have your cell phone with you on your trip (and who doesn't? lol) call 270-898-2431, the Highway Dept. district office in Paducah that covers all of 24 except the parts in Christian and Caldwell counties. But they'll know about the entire road.
Now, I just read what notthatgirl posted. Even if there is anything on the road now. it will definitely be off by the 13th.
