HAMILTON, Ohio -- The salt supply used to keep roads in Butler County safe during inclement winter weather is dwindling.
The Butler County Engineer's Office says the amount of salt is low as a result of the number of snow events that the Tri-State has endured this winter.
The engineer's office says they've used approximately 6,000 tons of salt and have around 5,000 tons left.
If significant snow amounts continue to fall, they said the back-up plan is to "spot-treat" areas like intersections, curves and hills to limit salt use, but still decrease danger on the more difficult roads to navigate.
As for other parts of the Tri-State, Northern Kentucky's Transportation Cabinet says they have plenty of salt, adding that the entire state of Kentucky will have enough to last through the rest of the winter.
The city of Cincinnati also says there is no shortage, but can make calls to obtain more salt should they start getting low.
Another round of snow is forecast to arrive in the Tri-State late Friday night into Saturday morning with 1-3 inches accumulating through mid-day Saturday.
