Areas in Whitley should get resurfaced soon

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Road resurfacing should soon begin in Whitley County after a special-called fiscal court meeting Wednesday.

Judge/Executive Pat White Jr. explained to the magistrates that the county annually requests grant monies from the state in order to blacktop county roads.

He said the official agreement from the state arrived in the county last week, and in order to expedite the process, White wanted magistrates to give the go-ahead for him to sign the agreement.

“We can’t start (resurfacing) until (the agreement) is signed,” White said, adding that the county could add a road or two during the blacktop process. “We want to get it to Frankfort…and try to get those projects complete.”

The total monies granted to cover the county’s planned resurfacing projects is nearly $268,000.

The fund dollars get plucked from the state’s Flex Fund. The Flex Fund is dollars left over after all state-recommended projects have been completed.

Areas targeted for blacktop are 1.7 miles of Laurel Fork, one mile of Mud Creek-Lot, .83 miles of Deering Road, 1.023 miles of Red Hill, .38 miles of Skinner Hollow, just over a half-mile for Cindy Lane, one mile of Tidal Wave Road and nine-tenths of a mile on Rock Springs.

Magistrate Jamie Fuson motioned to approve White signing the agreement, with a second from Magistrate Roger Wells.

Magistrates were unanimous with this decision.
