Ky. 163 work set

GLASGOW — Surface work on the construction of Ky. 163 in Monroe and Metcalfe counties is expected to begin this spring, with completion anticipated for either this fall or early 2014, according to officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District 3 office in Bowling Green.

Monroe and Metcalfe county officials have said their counties will benefit from the project in a variety of ways, one of which is safety. Another is added tourism. The primary benefit of the road, they hope, will be a second look from industry officials when making decisions regarding the location of manufacturing facilities.

“Hopefully, it will help bring some new industry,” said Greg Wilson, judge-executive for Metcalfe County.

Tommy Willett, judge-executive for Monroe County, agreed and said when prospective industry officials are looking to locate or relocate manufacturing facilities in an area, one of the top five things they consider is roads.
