Each year the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet releases the Rural Secondary Program information, which tells of how much projected allotment each county will receive for state road projects.
The Rural Secondary (RS) Program is funded by 22.2 perecent of the motor fuels tax revenue. These funds are used for the construction, reconstruction and maintenance of secondary and rural roads in each county. Allocation of RS funds is determined using the Fifths Formula. The Transportation Cabinet is responsible for expending all Rural Secondary Program funds.
Tim Sharp, Branch Manager for Project Delivery and Preservation with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, attended the Tuesday, March 22 fiscal court meeting to submit the 2016-2017 rural secondary program for Logan County. According to the cabinet, the county will receive $1,622,620 to be spent in Logan County on secondary road projects for the up and coming fiscal year.
Of that $1,622,620:
$670,000 will be spent on routine maintenance
$3,862 on county judge expenses
$223,343 on flex funds projects
$172,313 on a resurface of 2.278 miles of KY 664, Sulphur Springs Road from KY 663 to the Simpson County line
$175,590 on a resurface of 2.041 miles of KY 848, Darnell Road from the Todd County line to KY 102
