State Approves $200,000 for Muhlenberg Roadways

beshear b 300MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY (10/11/12) - Gov. Steve Beshear has allowed Rep. Brent Yonts to select roads to be blacktopped in Muhlenberg County this fall using $200,000 in state road funds.
 
“We have chosen those roads that are in the worst condition, yet would not otherwise be repaired this year, (without this funding)” said Rep. Brent Yonts, D-Greenville. Yonts turned selection of the roads over to members of the county’s fiscal court to ensure citizens countywide benefit from repairs, he said. The county’s magistrates made the final road selection.
 
Roads authorized for blacktopping by the state using the road funds include:
 
–A portion of Preacher King Road at Nelson Creek, $53,400;
–A portion of Paradise Road at Greenville, $42,000;
–Depoy Sharon Road from Bards Hill Road south 4,000 feet, $44,900;
–Clifton Lane from Charlie Brown Road 775 feet at Cherry Hill, $9,800;
–Burden Hill Lane from Gishton Road to end of the right of way, about 1,350 feet, $13,300;
–Main Street at South Carrollton from Hwy. 181 to a curve, around 900 feet, $8,200;
–Reed Cemetery Road at Bremen from Whitmer Anderson to the end of the road, around 1,850 feet, $13,000, and;
–Mud River Union Road at Belton from KY 2270 E, around 3,350 feet, $40,000.
 
“The total cost to blacktop the roads approved for paving by the state is approximately $224,000. The county has agreed to pay for any blacktopping cost above the $200,000, bringing its total to around $24,000.00,” said Yonts.
