State grants bring area improvements

KY Logo

Gov. Steve Beshear came to western Kentucky Wednesday to announce one project and deliver funding to another. Beshear was in Lyon County to spotlight two projects that will bring lasting benefits to the Lake Barkley region – a multi-use bike or pedestrian trail along the lake front and a new amphitheater on the northern shore. The governor presented a ceremonial check for $322,300, part of the federal Transportation Alternatives Program for continued development of a multi-use trail system and a scenic lookout adjacent to Lake Barkley. The project has been years in the making, with the city completing phase 1 in 2004, and set to begin construction on Phase 2. Later in the day, Beshear announced a project in Paducah that will accomplish two important goals – the badly needed rehabilitation of a mile of Kentucky Avenue, coupled with the relocation of water, sewer and gas lines that run at a shallow depth beneath the street. Beshear said the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is aiming offer the project for bids in January. (Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development; Updated: 9:48 am, Thursday)
