Paving projects announced in Boyd, Carter counties

ASHLAND — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced its second round of spring asphalt rehabilitation projects this week. The agency awarded 66 contracts in 45 counties totaling more than $64 million.

“Our highway system supports virtually everything we do in Kentucky in terms of economic development, commerce, jobs, education and recreation,” Gov. Steve Beshear said.

“It represents an incalculable investment, and good stewardship requires that we keep it well-maintained.”

In Boyd County, four asphalt paving projects have been awarded, all with a completion date of Nov. 15.
