Emergency road funding approved for Lee County

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT/Department of Transportation) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced Monday the Lee County Fiscal Court will receive $11,700 in County Road Aid emergency funds. These funds will be used to repair a slide on Mill Branch School Road (CR 1135).

"It is important that we help cities and counties fund emergency repairs to local roadways, because those routes are vital links in the state's transportation network," Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said. "Solid transportation infrastructure is vital in Lee County and across the Commonwealth."

The Lee County Fiscal Court is responsible for administering the work.
