MANCHESTER, Ky. – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet today announced that the Bell County Fiscal Court will receive $16,500 in County Road Aid emergency funds for repairs to various county roads damaged by heavy rains in March.

The roads serve numerous residences in Bell 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 Bell County and across the commonwealth.”

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