posted 03/06/2013 by email@example.com
Each year, the state submits its plans for using Rural Secondary Road Funds and asks local governments for their input in terms of spending what is known as “flex funds” on state maintained highway projects. During Tuesday’s meeting of the McCreary County Fiscal Court, a representative from the state Transportation Cabinet submitted the state’s recommendations for projects in the next fiscal year. Among those is resurfacing of KY 3258 in Rattlesnake Ridge from one end to another for a distance of nearly seven miles at a cost of about $359,000 and resurfacing of KY 1045, Beulah Heights Road, from mile marker 3.6 to the end at KY 700 for a distance of about 4 ½ miles and a cost of $316,000. About $221,000 remain in “flex funds” with local officials able to submit their recommendations to the state on how and where those funds should be spent on highway projects. Fiscal court gave their nod of approval to the state’s recommendations.
