The state of Kentucky is expected to receive $3 billion in stimulus funding and Harrison County will come close to receiving $3 million.
State Rep. Tom McKee said stimulus funding is determined by each community’s need.
“A lot of it is specified by the federal government,” McKee said. “It comes with strings attached.”
While the reconstruction of the north Main Street viaduct isn’t being directly funded by stimulus money, McKee said the availability of stimulus funding opened up revenue with the Department of Transportation.
“The state allowed us to go ahead and move forward with it,” McKee said about the viaduct reconstruction.
The project, he said, will cost $8.5 million.
