WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has been awarded $55 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant program.
The federal grant will be used to expand and improve safety along the Mountain Parkway in Eastern Kentucky. The project will widen and improve 11 miles of the Parkway in Wolfe County, helping creating a safe, four-lane corridor for cars and trucks traveling between I-64 and rural Eastern Kentucky. Once completed, the Parkway will facilitate freight and goods to move efficiently throughout the area. The project is also expected to reduce travel time.
