JACKSON, Ky. – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet today announced that the Menifee County Fiscal Court will receive $75,000 in County Road Aid emergency funds for repairs to various county roads damaged by spring flooding.

 

The money will be used to replace three drainage structures on Big Salt Lick Road, Tinsley Eversole Road and Stone Quarry Road. The roads serve numerous residences in Menifee County. The repairs will make it safer for school buses and other vehicles.

 

“It is important that we help cities and counties fund emergency repairs to local roadways, because those routes are vital links in the state’s transportation network,” Transportation Secretary Joe Prather said. “Solid transportation infrastructure is vital in Menifee County and across the commonwealth.”

 

The Menifee County Fiscal Court is responsible for administering the work.
