FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Governor Matt Bevin reaffirmed today that two essential road aid programs will continue to operate in the Fiscal Year 2017.
Flex Funds and 80/20 Bridge Replacement will be available to local officials, designed to give local government the flexibility to use state funds for local county road projects.
“Providing a safe and reliable transportation network is a top priority of our administration. However, as costs and demands rise, local governments are struggling with the increased financial burden,” said Gov. Bevin. “Having control of these crucial funds will help local communities across the Commonwealth preserve, maintain and repair Kentucky’s aging infrastructure.”
