The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has selected a spot for a new highway maintenance barn in LaRue County.
Mark Brown, public affairs officer for KYTC, confirmed a site on Ky. 210 (Campbellsville Road) has been purchased.
The tract was transferred from Carl Howell Jr. and Sharon A. Howell to the Transportation Cabinet in June. County Clerk records show $75,000 was given for the land near the LaRue County Fairgrounds.
Details for the new barn are not complete, Brown said. It will provide a “more efficient” place to store equipment, materials and salt.
