The Clark County Fiscal Court is supporting the state's proposed 2007-08 Rural and Secondary Roads Program, which includes funds for maintenance and five major resurfacing projects. Stuart Goodpaster, a manager from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, presented the $956,000 plan Wednesday before the court gave it a green light.
Under state law, the program allocates funds generated from Kentucky's 22.2 percent gasoline tax to each county for maintenance and reconstruction of state roads in rural areas. This year Clark County has received a tentative allotment of $624,616 along with more than $332,000 of funds remaining from last year.
"It's a way that (rural roads) can be maintained without having to compete with some of the higher-class roads," Goodpaster said.
- $118,000 for 2.811 miles of resurfacing on Conkwright Road from Howard Creek Road at milepoint 12.225 to Irvine Road at mile point 15.036.
