County To Receive $100K For Repairs On Brooks Road: Open Temporarily, Blacktopping To Begin On Monday
Edmonson Voice Report:
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet today announced the Edmonson County Fiscal Court will receive $100,000 in County Road Aid emergency funds for slide repair on Brooks Road.
A portion of the road, which joins Union Light Road and Brier Creek Road, was closed due to a collapse into a private lake on June 8, 2021. Repairs have been ongoing since that time.
“The Transportation Cabinet is pleased to approve this request for funding to provide assistance to Edmonson County to repair and maintain safe connections in the community,” said Transportation Secretary Jim Gray.
The repairs will take place on Brooks Road located from a half a mile north of KY 1015.
The Edmonson County Fiscal Court is responsible for administering the work.
County Road Supervisor Greg Carroll said that the repaired section of the road has been reopened for now.
"We will start repaving it on Monday," he said. "There are 2,000 tons of blacktop to lay. If there's no bad luck, it will take two weeks to pave it, then all the repairs will be complete."
