MANCHESTER, KY. (August 28, 2007) -  Emergency state road aid recently awarded by Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) will ensure safe travel on two Clay County roads.

The Clay County Fiscal Court received $46,000 in state funds to repair Sapling Fork Road (County Road 1219) and Liberty Hills Road (County Road 1310) in rural Clay County. These roadways serve the area’s residents.

“This project exemplifies Governor Fletcher’s unwavering commitment to serve local communities,” said Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bill Nighbert. “We have been successful in providing additional funding for cities and counties over the past couple of years to make emergency repairs on local roads. Solid transportation infrastructure is vital as we build strong communities in Clay County and across the Commonwealth.”

The award amount from the Transportation Cabinet covers 80 percent of the total project cost. Clay County Fiscal Court is responsible for administering all phases of work.
