The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has paid $625,000 dollars to a highway contractor over a delay in a Jessamine County road project and agreed to pay the contractor another $850,000 if work doesn't start by May 1.
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin joined Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in Henderson Thursday to sign a memorandum of understanding initiating the study and design of a new Ohio River bridge for Interstate 69, connecting Henderson to Evansville, Ind.
Update: The contractor working on a portion of the I-69 corridor in western Kentucky was unable to install a temporary barrier last night as planned on the eastbound lane of I-24 in Marshall county Tuesday due to weather. The installation is now scheduled for 8 p.m. June 1.
Officials with the state transportation cabinet are laying out their six year, six billion dollar road plan to Kentucky legislators. The plan focuses on safety and highway congestion issues. Members of the House Budget Review Subcommittee heard a report Tuesday.
