What's News this week in Crittenden County...

A new transportation plan approved last week by the Kentucky House of Representatives would bode well for Crittenden County and the rest of the state traveling the commonwealth’s crumbling infrastructure, if it is OK’d by the upper chamber before the legislative session ends next month. The state’s transportation budget would finance ferry operations, shore up two structurally deficient bridges and build a new state highway maintenance facility in Crittenden County. It would also replace the U.S. 60 bridge at Smithland and begin construction on the second leg of the U.S. 641 relocation project.
