The Clark County Fiscal Court approved agreements Wednesday for improvements and resurfacing to local roads and heard an update on the ongoing biofuels project in Clark County.
Chief among the road projects, court members voted in favor of the Rural Secondary Road Program, which will provide up to $151,900 from the state Transportation Cabinet to repave two roads in Clark County. The upgrades will occur on Bybee Road from Four Mile Road to 2.2 miles north, and on Ecton Road from Thomas Station Road to the Montgomery County line.
The court also voted for a $22,811 contract with E & H Bridge & Grating from Bedford, Indiana, for bridge work on Four Mile Road and a $23,500 contract with The Allen Company for about 300 feet of pavement repair and replacement on Four Mile Road.
Later in Wednesday’s meeting, Clark County Judge-Executive Henry Branham provided an update on the Center for Renewable and Alternative Fuel Technologies, which is performing research that will set the stage for a biofuels plant in Clark County.
