Nearly $200,000 in discretionary road funding announced

Frankfort – State Rep. Kathy Hinkle said Gov. Andy Beshear’s announcement this morning, that Carter County would be getting $194,928 to repair two local roads, “will make a significant difference for our community and give us the improved infrastructure we need and deserve.  This will mean so much for those who drive these roads every day.”

“Representative Hinkle has worked closely with Governor Beshear, Transportation Cabinet officials and local county leaders to make sure Carter County gets its fair share from the state to improve its local roads,” said Rocky Adkins, current senior advisor for Gov. Beshear and former House Democratic Floor Leader. “Our goal is to get these roads repaired as soon as possible.”

Rep. Hinkle added, “I was proud to work with County Judge Executive Mike Malone, the fiscal court, Governor Beshear and Transportation Cabinet officials to make this money available.  These projects will make these roads much safer, and I’m looking forward to the day when this work is complete.  At the same time, I realize there is still more to be done.”

The two roads getting repaved with state funds include Huffs Run and West Brinegar Road.
