Road crews are expected to hack as much as $100,000 in county paving projects this year, under Oldham County’s new $20.5 million fiscal budget.
That’s disappointing news to Sheree Leffel Knopf, who lives in the county’s rural northeastern corner.
Knopf said road conditions are so poor near Highway 1488, that her husband often tows stuck motorists with his tractor. In rough conditions, she said some neighbors must rely on ATVs to get home. Property owners in the most remote areas have no reliable road access, she said.
