Groundbreaking for Marion’s Branch

The groundbreaking ceremony of the Marion’s Branch Industrial Park held yesterday indicates the start of phase one, which is a nearly six million dollar access road to the industrial park.

The next phase will be the building of an 8-million dollar bridge that will create easy access from US 23 to the site.

Senator Ray Jones says, "This project is vitally important to the growth of our region."

Leaders say the site will bring good paying, solid jobs to an economy that desperately needs diversity.

The Kentucky Transportation Department of Aviation announced that they will be donating nearly $750 Thousand for the 400 acre project.
