money sign 300DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (10/8/19) — Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Rural and Municipal Aid Commissioner Gray Tomblyn II announced $78,204 in discretionary funds for vital resurfacing work on Franklin Street. Resurfacing repairs address existing surface cracks, potholes, raveling, and base failures. The investment supports Gov/ Matt Bevin’s commitment to prioritize transportation infrastructure projects and increase economic opportunity across the commonwealth.

“The Bevin Administration continues to focus on taking care of what we have at both the state and local level to address critical infrastructure needs that improve safety and support job creation and retention,” said KYTC Secretary Greg Thomas. “This funding builds upon existing transportation investments and allows the Cabinet to collaborate with local governments to identify projects that will have a large impact in communities.”

“The city of Whitesville would like to thank Gov. Bevin and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for making additional funds available for our streets,” said Mayor Patsy Mayfield. “Our streets are in great need of repair and we are so appreciative for all your help in our community.”

Projects submitted to the Department of Rural and Municipal Aid for discretionary fund consideration were evaluated by the KYTC district staff to assess the condition of roads and determine the most critical needs based on factors such as safety, economic impact, and traffic volumes.

“This is great news for the citizens of Whitesville,” said Sen. Matt Castlen. “Nothing is more essential to a successful community than having safe roadways, and I look forward to the completion of this infrastructure upgrade.”

The repairs will improve the condition of the road and increase safety for motorists who travel the route.

“I am thrilled to see this investment in safe, quality infrastructure in Daviess County,” Rep. Scott Lewis said. “Maintaining our roads is critical for safety and economic development, and is a key priority of mine. I want to thank the Administration for working with the General Assembly and our local officials to prioritize road funding in our part of the state.”

The city of Whitesville is responsible for administering the work, and KYTC will reimburse the city for the project.
