Special to the Times-Tribune

The city of Barbourville has been granted $22,700 by the Transportation Cabinet’s Department of Rural and Municipal Aid to improve drainage systems adjacent to city streets.

The Department of Rural and Municipal Aid frequently dispatches funds to city and county governments in an effort to improve routes which are not state-owned but tie into the state system. City officials will be responsible for all phases of the work.

 “We are pleased to partner with local governments to improve highway access for the citizens of Barbourville, and all of District 11,” said Sherri Chappell, acting chief district engineer for the Department of Highways District 11, which includes Bell, Clay, Harlan, Jackson, Knox, Laurel, Leslie and Whitley counties.
