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

convenient path.”

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.
