More than $7 million awarded for asphalt resurfacing
Funds part of the Rural Secondary Road resurfacing program
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 14, 2013) – More than $7 million in Rural Secondary Road asphalt resurfacing projects were awarded recently by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
The projects will result in improved roadways in 14 Kentucky counties.
Funding for the projects was generated from the state motor fuels tax, of which 22.2 percent is dedicated to the Rural Secondary Program. Counties are allocated money for construction, reconstruction and maintenance of state-maintained secondary and rural highways by a formula based on population, road mileage ratios and size of county.
More than $50 million has been awarded this year for the program through a three-month letting season.
