New build-ready certified site announced in Somerset

A new Build-Ready-certified site at Somerset-Pulaski Economic Development Authority Commerce Park in neighboring Pulaski County was announced by Gov. Andy Beshear on Wednesday, with hopes of attracting new business to the region.

The tract, located at 2000 Barnesburg Road in Somerset, adds to the growing list of sites certified by the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development and available statewide for companies looking to quickly begin construction and start operation as soon as possible.

The Lake Cumberland Regional Industrial Complex, formerly the French Valley Business Park, and the Jamestown Industrial Park are sites in Russell County on the list.

The new site in Pulaski County includes a 100,000-square-foot building pad on 22 acres and will be zoned and developed for industrial use. The property sits parallel to Kentucky Highway 80, which is a designated truck network road. The site also is located 25 miles from Exit 41 of Interstate Highway 75.
