Roads include Lock, Cedar Brook, Kays, Fairview, Bonds Mill


The Anderson County Fiscal Court approved nearly $700,000 in paving projects during its meeting last Tuesday night.
Nearly $600,000 of that amount is being provided by the state’s Rural Secondary Road program and will be used on a 5.3-mile stretch of Kays and Fairview roads between Highway 52 and US 62, which was last resurfaced in 2000.
Another $100,000 will be used on a 1.3-mile stretch of Bonds Mill Road, which was also resurfaced in 2000 and leads to the distillery at Four Roses.
Those projects were recommended by the state Transportation Cabinet, which is supplying the funds. It also offered $92,200 to resurface a 1.3-mile portion of Mill Creek Pike, but the fiscal court decided instead to apply that to resurfacing Lock and Cedar Brook roads, a project that will cost $199,200.
Both were on the county’s priority list last year, Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway said during the meeting.
