LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Mount Sterling is receiving $154,000 from the state to resurface North Maysville Street, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
Resurfacing repairs address existing surface cracks, potholes, raveling, and base failures.
Mayor Al Botts identified this road as being among the most critical in the city.
Projects submitted to the Department of Rural and Municipal Aid for discretionary fund consideration were evaluated by the KYTC district staff to assess the condition of roads and determine the most critical needs based on factors such as safety, economic impact, and traffic volumes.
The road set to be addressed is in need of repair due to degradation and water drainage issues.
The road provides access to more than 45 homes, many churches, local businesses, a hospital and a school.
The City is responsible for all phases of work; reimbursement will be issued to the city by the District Office.
Discretionary funds will be used for this project.
Resurfacing work will address:
