Local county getting financial help replacing damaged culvert

A local county is getting some financial help to repair a damaged culvert.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced that it is giving $35,000 in Emergency Road Aid to the Crittenden County Fiscal Court to help with the replacement of a culvert on Hurricane Church Road.

The bottom of the culvert has rusted out and that has caused the road to drop. The culvert is near the Hurricane Church Campground.

Crittenden County Judge-Executive Perry Newcom says the funds will help soften what would have been a major blow to the county road fund.

Newcom says they will discuss repairing the culvert during the June 16th fiscal court meeting.
