Emergency road aid funds awarded for slide repairs in Shelby County
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 5, 2018) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recently awarded County Road Aid emergency funds for two slide repairs in Shelby County. These funds will be used for repairs on Bardstown Trail (CR 1122) and Cat Walk Road (CR 1035). KYTC is providing $68,000 for repairs on Bardstown Trail and $148,000 for repairs on Cat Walk Road.
“The Bevin administration is committed to the Cabinet’s mission of providing a safe, reliable transportation network for all Kentuckians,” said Transportation Secretary Greg Thomas.  “These emergency funds will help local governments repair and restore damaged infrastructure throughout their communities.”
The KYTC District 5 Office will be responsible for administering the work. Slide repairs will be performed by Geostabilization International LLC. To help reduce costs, KYTC maintenance staff and the Shelby County Road Department will work together on excavation and hauling of materials.
Repairs are scheduled to begin Wednesday, July 11 at the slide on Cat Walk Road located 0.29 miles east of KY 1922 (Cedarmore Road). The work will take approximately two weeks to complete. Crews will then move to Bardstown Trail to repair the slide near the intersection with Buzzard Roost Road.

Once the slide repairs are complete, Shelby County Fiscal Court will be responsible for roadway reconstruction at both locations which includes asphalt paving and guardrail installation.
The date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.
