The first project will be the resurfacing of U.S. 25-E beginning at the Knox County line to the floodgates at Pineville. This will be a $1.8 million project and will cover 4.2 miles.
“This section of 25-E is in terrible shape and I hope Hinkle Construction will start very soon,” Nelson said.
The second project will be a $265,000 paving job from Yellow Creek School on Highway 74 to Bell County Coal, a distance of 2.21 miles.
The third project will be a 4.1 mile stretch of Highway 190, beginning at the Tennessee state line and going to Kentucky 3483. The project cost is $265,000.
Another project let late in 2010 will start soon. Highway 119 from the Harlan County line to the Blackmont Bridge covering 1.9 miles will be resurfaced and cost $289,000.
“We are requesting a lot more paving for 2011, and we have requested the resurfacing of Highway 119 from the Blackmont Bridge to the Industrial Park Bridge,” said Nelson.
