Darren Doyle, story:
Joe Plunk, Chief District Engineer (CDE) for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 3 office, spoke to Edmonson County Fiscal Court today with a brief overview of the 2018-19 fiscal year's budget for the county's rural secondary roads.
The total allotment for the county exceeds $1.1 million dollars with the bulk of the amount set aside for preventive treatment and drainage work on 8.8 miles of KY 259 (Brownsville-Rocky Hill Rd), which will total more than $492,000.
Mr. Plunk also noted that $356,900 will go towards routine maintenance and traffic on 88.9 miles rural secondary roads at a rate of $4,014 per mile.
Plunk was joined by Kevin Geralds, Branch Manager for construction and maintenance activities and Blake Williams, a section engineer.
The KY Department of Transportation is required by law to give an annual report to local fiscal courts on the rural secondary roads program.
