Asphalt rehab projects awarded for counties across the state

FRANKFORT, Ky. More than $54 million in asphalt rehab projects were awarded this month by The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
 The latest round of projects brings this year’s total for asphalt rehabilitation contacts to more than $140 million.
 The asphalt contracts recently awarded are taking place in 59 of Kentucky’s 120 counties.
“Improving and maintaining our roadways through asphalt rehabilitation is just one of the ways we work toward providing safe and efficient travel routes throughout the Commonwealth,” Kentucky Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said. “We are pleased so many projects can be awarded that help us accomplish this goal.”
 The contracts awarded span the Commonwealth, from Fulton County in the south west to Greenup County in the north east. They also range in cost from a $6.9 million project to improve KY 80 in Pulaski County to a $96,000 project in Caldwell County to improve North Jefferson Street (KY 293).
