FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. - (March 29, 2006) -- Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet are taking action to replace the bridge over Marsh Run Creek on Cattletsburg-Cannonsburg Road (KY 3294) in Boyd County.  An emergency appropriation of $124,786 has been authorized for construction of the new bridge, located 1.38 miles east of US 60.

“When emergency situations require repairs, it is our goal to make those repairs as quickly as possible,” said Bill Nighbert, Transportation Cabinet secretary. “This project should make travel safer for those who use this road each day to get to work or school.”

The project will be completed by Highway District 9 personnel and the cost will be paid from the Rural Secondary Emergency Fund.
