Poor road conditions are a sore spot for most drivers. But, select Madison County roadways are about to see an upgrade.
According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), $176,397 in discretionary funds will be awarded to the Madison County Fiscal Court for vital resurfacing work.
Ford Road, Peggy Flats Road, Courage Road, and Moberly Road are the roads that have been selected for repairs. Resurfacing repairs address existing surface cracks, potholes, raveling, and base failures.
Madison County Judge-Executive Reagan Taylor identified these roads as being among the most critical in the county.
“On behalf of the Madison County Fiscal Court, I am greatly appreciative of the financial support from Governor Bevin and the team at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to address the needed infrastructure issues impacting Madison County,” said Judge-Executive Taylor.
The funding will allow for nearly four miles of pavement resurfacing work to be completed on four county roads that experience heavy traffic volume and serve as school bus routes.
Representatives R. Travis Brenda and Les Yates also noted that the award will help maintain critical infrastructure.
“Resurfacing Peggy Flats Road will mean a big improvement for the people who live and travel that road,” said Rep. Brenda. “Projects like this are exactly what discretionary funds are supposed to be used for in our local communities.”
“Several of these roads are in need of quick repairs,” said Rep. Yates. “This is a great move by the Governor to help Madison County fix some of these more urgent road problems.”
