MADISONVILLE, Ky. – The Ohio County Fiscal Court has been awarded $302,887 for road repairs on three county roads.

The funding will be used for resurfacing repairs to address existing surface cracks, potholes, raveling and base failures.

This is part of Governor Matt Bevin’s commitment to prioritize transportation infrastructure projects and increase economic opportunity across the Commonwealth.

The funding will allow the county to have resurfacing along sections of Hamlin Chapel Road, Bald Knob Road, and Horace Martin Loop. It will impact about 40 families that depend on those roads to get to and from work and school.

Resurfacing work will address:

— Hamlin Chapel Road (CR-1117) from milepoint 0.00 to milepoint 1.84

— Bald Knob Road (CR-1173) from milepoint 0.00 to milepoint 1.87

— Horace Martin Loop (CR-1407) from milepoint 0.00 to 1.33
