House passes budget to fund several road projects

The Kentucky House has passed a two-year, three and a half billion dollar transportation budget.

The funding would pay for road and bridge construction across the state.

The vote passed Friday morning by a vote of 88 to 4.

The plan would funnel money to several major projects already under way, including widening dangerous stretches of Interstate 65 in Western Kentucky and the Mountain Parkway.
