More than $400,000 was awarded to the Calloway County Fiscal Court for road resurfacing work.

CALLOWAY COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet awarded $472,010 in discretionary funds to the Calloway County Fiscal Court for road resurfacing work.

The resurfacing fixes surface cracks, potholes, rutting, crumbling shoulders and base failures.

It will include:

  • Van Cleave Road (County Road 1006) from milepoint 0 to milepoint 1.995
  • Tidwell Drive (County Road 1445) from milepoint 0 to milepoint 1.919
  • Tom Taylor Trail (County Road 1282) from milepoint 0 to milepoint 2.36

Former Calloway County Judge-Executive Larry Elkins identified the roads as being in need of critical surface improvements. Some of the county roads that will see improvements are farm-to-market roads that are important routes during the fall harvest.

Projects submitted to the Department of Rural and Municipal Air for discretionary fund consideration were evaluated by the KYTC District 1 engineering staff based on safety, economic impact and traffic volumes.
