Funds Awarded to Kenton Co. for Slide, Bridge Repair

A Kenton County bridge and road will see improvements soon.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced Monday that $130,000 in County Road Aid funds were awarded to Kenton County to repair a slide on Conley Road (County Road 1110) just south of Decoursey Pike (KY 177).

The Kenton County Fiscal Court is responsible for administering the work.

Meanwhile, work on the bridge from Decoursey over Bowman Creek in the same area will begin on Tuesday.

The bridge is one of eight in Kenton County to be included in the Bridging Kentucky program, which aims to restore 1,000 bridges across the state over the next six years.

The project will include a new bridge deck overlay, bridge joint repairs, and decorative railing repairs.

M & M Services Co Inc. of Mt. Sterling was awarded the low bid contract for $237,000.

During the project, one lane will be closed for approximately 30 days. A temporary signal will be in place to assist with traffic control.

It is expected to be completed in the spring.
