More than $1 million will go toward improving Eastern Kentucky highway safety near public schools — protecting students, educators, and the community.It’s part of Gov. Andy Beshear’s latest initiative in targeting the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s (KYTC) funding allocated in the 2020 Highway Plan toward safety projects.Nearly 70 safety improvement projects in 44 counties across the state are included in the award, totaling $23 million. In Floyd County, along state Route 114 a new traffic pattern will restrict left-hand turns but allow for a U-turn farther down to gain access to Prestonsburg Elementary.
