Winter & bike lanes

Winter & bike lanes

As one who cycles in the snow along the track of car tires, where the asphalt is clear of snow & often dry as a result of the car traffic, I wonder what winter holds for our bike lanes & cyclists who use or avoid them. Behind these questions is a desire to see year-round bike commuters in Louisville.
Will the bike lanes be plowed & salted?
Will the floppy ‘bollards’ obstruct clearing the bike lanes?
Will the slush from passing cars drench cyclists in the bike lane?
Will cyclists in riding in the clean tracks of the cars be splattered (or worse) by motorists impatiently passing by using the slushy, icy bike lanes?
