CLARK COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced Tuesday the Clark County Fiscal Court will receive $481,000 of state money to resurface some roads in desperate need of repair.
The resurfacing will fix cracks, potholes, and more on Thomsen Station Road, Sewell Shop Road, Logan Lick Road, Goshen Road, and Jackson Ferry Road.
Clark County Judge-Executive Chris Pace says those are the roads that need the most work in the county.
“The award of state discretionary road funding for Fiscal Year 2019 will allow Clark County to pave several roads in the eastern corridor of the county, some of which have been underserved for decades,” said Judge-Executive Pace. “$481,000 is the largest single award of discretionary road funding we have received in recent memory and will allow us to address needs that would otherwise go unmet due to local budget constraints. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our legislators, the Governor’s office and District Seven Transportation officials for helping Clark County meet the needs of our citizens. This all ties into our overall goal to improve infrastructure in order to make Clark County an even more attractive place to live and a thriving market for new business and innovation in central Kentucky.”
