Our roads suck

Lexington, KY

Did anyone get hurt when rocks fell from hill today? We were coming home from work in campbellsville and saw someone almost wreck when they hit the loose rocks. Theres more up on hillside ready to fall rite into the highway. We depend on 70 to get to and from work and this is disgusting. Its happened 3 times in a year now. 70 is so bad and we deserve a road without rocks layin all over the asphalt. It was rite in a curve and you couldnt see them til last minuit. Everyone at work makes fun of Casey County because our highways are so crooked, just like our officials charged with fixing them(supposedly). They make fun cause they have good roads going every direction, except into Casey. WTF? Maybe we need someone hired 24/7 to keep watch and push rocks off when they fall next time! Fix these crooked ass roads, does anyone else care?~Fed up girl.

Casey County don't have the money to built super highways and the state is not going to build super highways in Casey County because we don't pay our fair share of state taxes.

Bla bla bla u do realize the county does not pay for or maintain the roads mentioned. Hmm, probably because they are state roads. So what exactly does that have to do with the ag center?

tell me what kind of revenue does the county bring in from the ag center? When a large amount of our tax dollars are threw away there . Also just take a little ride out on the county roads and then you tell me they don't need work. I could careless about the state road that was mentioned cause I don't travel it.

We dont have the funds becuase we had to resurface the airport at the station.

The paving on the airport was done at the State's direction and totally funded by the KY Dept. of Aviation a division of the KY Transportation Cabinet. All funds from the Aviation Dept. come from tax on airplane fuel sales all across the State. Not one penny of local road funds paid for the blacktop. Sorry to burst your bubble.

The Ag center is already there so lets drop the issue. The state Ag dept had Casey, Taylor, or Marion Co in mind for this center. The other 2 counties have 2 or 3 major highway artieries so be thankfull we got the thing! Now, as for our highways, those projects are selected by a regional committee to the best of my knowledge. Its not just Casey or Adair, i assume someone from every county has a say as to what gets sent to Frankfort for review by state and what doesnt. IDK nothing about that other than what my father told me but some roads that should be worked on are 70 and 49. We live near 501 and 910 in phil and these roads are awful. they do SUCK i suppose lol.
