Road supervisor informs Fiscal Court of operations

By Ron Benningfield

LaRue County road crews spread about 130 tons of salt during the recent snow and cold spell, Timmy Brown, county road supervisor, told magistrates meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville Jan. 12.

“That’s almost three times what we would have used if temperatures would have risen above freezing,” he said. Brown said he has another 150 tons ordered.

He also reported his crews have started removing the fence line and trees along Brooks Road to improve driver visibility and provide more sunlight on the road.
