Beshear announces Williams Lane funding
Seventy-thousand dollars in state funding for Williams Lane announced
last week by Gov. Andy Beshear will help more than just the people who
live in the area, Magistrate Liles Taylor (Dist. 1) told the Sun.
Taylor called it “tremendous news” and thanked Judge-Executive James Kay
and the county road department for submitting the reimbursement request.
He said work will include raising the road and the project will “ensure
a safe and speedy route for emergency vehicles, allow for routine solid
waste and recycling pickup, provide easy access to their USPS cluster
mailboxes, and give area thru-traffic consistent access to that
According to a news release from Beshear’s office, the Williams Lane
project is part of a $5 million “transportation investment” that will
pay for nearly 60 miles of road resurfacing, repairs and new roads.
