Grants received in Lyon, Caldwell counties for transportation improvements

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet grants have been received by Lyon and Caldwell County for important projects.

A grant of just under $50,000 has been received by the Eddyville Riverport and Industrial Development Authority for the realignment of Agri-Chem access road project. Officials say an existing conveyor structure and concrete pad will be removed and the existing access road realigned to better facilitate truck movement. The second phase of the project involves resurfacing the scale road due to damage caused by loaded trucks.

Eddyville must match half of the grant amount, as part of the agreement.

Meanwhile, Paducah and Louisville Railroad received about $42,000 for improvements to the Liberty Church Road railroad crossing in Lyon County.

Fredonia Vailley Railroad was awarded just over $78,000 for improvements to the railroad crossing at Main Street in Princeton.
