During a visit to Knox County last week, Governor Matt Bevin announced major funding for both the City of Barbourville and Knox County.

The City will receive $62,000 for drainage replacement on Johnson Lane. The County will receive $760,964 in discretionary funding for pavement projects.

“Knox County is very appreciative of Governor Bevin and his willingness to promote and enhance safe travel by funding our local roads and infrastructure,” said Knox County Judge-Executive Mike Mitchell. “This funding enables us to maintain our local roads creating safer traveling for school buses and day-to-day travels back and forth to work.”

The City and County are responsible for seeing that the work is completed, and the state’s Transportation Cabinet will reimburse them for the projects.
