Discretionary Road Funds Awarded to County

As reported earlier this week on local news, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Rural and Municipal Aid Commissioner Gray Tomblyn II announced $313,539 in discretionary funds for the realignment of the KY 910 and KY 76 intersection at Monday’s Fiscal Court meeting.

The resurfacing and shoulder work will address the KY 910/KY 76 intersection from mile point 5.469 to mile point 5.83. The intersection is used heavily by motorists accessing Lake Cumberland and the improvements will better handle large boats, campers and commercial vehicles traveling through the area, according to Tomblyn.

Projects submitted to the Department of Rural and Municipal Aid for discretionary fund consideration were evaluated by KYTC district staff to assess the condition of roads and determine the most critical need based on factors such as safety, economic impact, and traffic volumes. The transportation cabinet is responsible for all phases of work.
