Newport Receives $330,000 from Transportation Cabinet for Major Road Repair

The city of Newport will receive $330,000 from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for major repairs and restoration of two roads damaged by heavy rains. A transportation official made the announcement that the cabinet will provide $275,000 from discretionary funds for repairs due to slippage on Grandview Avenue and another $55,000 for Overlook Drive, a road that connects to Route 9.

According to Newport Vice Mayor Tom Guidugli, Jr., while there has been patching and minor repairs, Overlook has not been fully repaved for generations. The work will stablize and restore two important roads in the community.

Last season’s rains took a heavy toll in the area and created a major issue for the city’s budget and resources.

"With the city struggling with budget challenges, this is extremely helpful for our community and will be vital to strengthening our hillside roads," said Guidugli.
