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 a Harlan County road.

The Harlan County Fiscal Court has received $59,720 in state funds to replace a bridge on Ruben Hollow Road (County Road 1341) in rural Harlan County, as it serves the area’s residents.

“Solid transportation infrastructure is vital as we build strong communities in Harlan County and across the Commonwealth.” said Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bill Nighbert. “This funding exemplifies Governor Fletcher’s unwavering commitment to local communities.”

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