State Names Cleanest Interstate Rest Area
And the award for the best maintained rest area in Kentucky goes to...
...the Bullitt County Welcome Center on Interstate 65.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) presented certificates Tuesday to employees of T&T Cleaning Service, of Boston, Ky. T&T Cleaning Service provides janitorial services for the Bullitt County facility along with Kentucky rest areas in McCracken, Carter and Oldham counties. This marks the second time this facility has received the award.
Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock commended all workers who are responsible for the facility’s upkeep.
“Having clean, accessible rest areas for travelers is one important way in which we fulfill our mission to provide a safe and reliable transportation system,” Secretary Hancock said.
“Motorists traveling Kentucky interstates recognize and appreciate the high level of care and attention given to ensure a safe, clean environment at our rest areas. The employees of T&T Cleaning Service do an exemplary job every day to make sure the Bullitt County welcome center reflects well on our great Commonwealth.”
The award is based on regular maintenance inspections and is presented annually by the Cabinet. Valley Crest Landscaping Inc. is responsible for landscape maintenance at the facility. KYTC Division of Maintenance oversees the operation.
The Cabinet operates seven welcome centers, sixteen rest areas, and four truck rest havens at weigh station locations. This year marks the fifteenth annual award ceremony.
