Three eastern roads included in governor's road plan

Three eastern Kentucky road projects are among those included in the governor's road plan.

Mountain Parkway - Widening from Campton to Salyersville
The Governor's plan provides just under $80 million toward the long-awaited four-laning of the parkway through Wolfe, Morgan and Magoffin counties. That includes more than $8.5 million for design, $6.8 million for right of way acquisition and utility relocation and $64.5 million for construction.

Appalachian Development Highway Corridors
The Governor's plan provides $269.3 million of federal Appalachian Development (APD) funding to complete construction of the U.S. 460 corridor in Pike County. The project involves relocating U.S. 460 from U.S. 23 to the Virginia line. In Letcher County, the Governor's plan provides $152.8 million of APD funds toward completion of the "Valley Floor" section of the U.S. 119 corridor. The project area extends from Partridge to Oven Fork.

KY 15 - Perry County
The Governor's plan provides $78.3 million toward widening 3½ miles of KY 15 to four lanes from Bonnyman to the Hazard Bypass.

The plan will be sent to the legislature for approval.
