FLEMINGSBURG, KY - (March 9, 2006) -- Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announce emergency road funding for the Lewis County Fiscal Court. The county has been authorized to receive $31,840 for a bridge on Bear Branch (CR 1067).


“This project is just one example of the cabinet’s commitment to recognizing a problem and taking action for a solution,” said Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bill Nighbert. “These emergency funds are being used to improve safety and mobility in Lewis County.  The Governor has directed our cabinet to improve efficiency and maximize the value taxpayers get out of every dollar.  We are using those guiding principals on projects both large and small.”


County Road Aid Emergency Funds will be used for this project.  The county is responsible for all phases of the work, which is located on Bear Branch, near the intersection of McDowell Road.  A check will be issued directly to the county as payment for the project.
