Judge stops Harlan road project

HARLAN, Ky. (AP) - A judge has issued a restraining order stopping road work in Harlan County.

The Harlan Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/SU4iZP) reports Circuit Judge Henry Johnson issued the order halting work on Kentucky 3459 at the request of the city and the Harlan Municipal Water Works Commission.

The order says the state intended to remove a culvert that runs under the road and replace it with a larger one.

At issue is who will pay for the work to be done.

According to the complaint, the state says the city should pay for it and the city wants the state to pay for it.
