Construction project to impact Waitsboro Recreation Area in Somerset

Neighboring Pulaski County’s Waitsboro Recreation Area on Lake Cumberland is set to see a replacement of their existing water distribution system, service lines, and supply lines, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced.

T and T Construction, the contractor for the project, began construction Monday, which is scheduled to last eight to 12 weeks.

The work includes trenching, excavation, backfill, compaction and plumbing work to ensure a fully operational system. The impacted area extends from the top of the hill that descends into the recreation area on Waitsboro Road, through the day use area, toward the campground.

Nearby alternate boat launch locations include the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ David H. Godby Boat Ramp seven miles to the west, the Corps’ Fishing Creek Recreation Area eight miles north, General Burnside Island State Park Boat Ramp five miles to the south, and Old Waitsboro Road, maintained by Pulaski County, six miles to the south.
