5 Kentucky parks to share funding for upgrades

OLIVE HILL, Ky. (AP) – State officials say five Kentucky State Park resorts will receive an estimated $3.13 million in safety and other improvements over the next two years.

The funding announced Tuesday comes from $18 million approved this year by state lawmakers and Gov. Matt Bevin. Bevin’s administration says the improvements will include structural repairs, painting and interior and exterior upgrades.

Examples of the planned upgrades include painting the lodge and cottages at Carter Caves State Resort Park; structural repairs at the lodge at Greenbo Lake State Resort Park; and roof and sidewalk repairs at Natural Bridge State Resort Park.

Other upgrades include lodge and conference center painting and electrical repairs at General Butler State Resort Park and repairs at the Pioneer Museum at Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park.
