McCracken Fiscal Court to Vote on Road Closure
By Adam Morton
PADUCAH, KY - A seldom-used road in McCracken County could be closing soon.
A public hearing was held during Tuesday's McCracken County Fiscal Court meeting after the Tennessee Valley Authority asked if Anderson Road could be closed. County Road Engineer Randy Williams spoke during the hearing. "We had a request to close the the road. The road no longer serves the public. No one lives on it. It doesn't serve a purpose other than going to what is TVA's property."
Williams also noted that Anderson Road is a dead end road.
There were no comments from the public.
The closure is in compliance of KRS 178.70 which allows fiscal courts to close county roads, provided they publish a notice at
three places within one mile of the road. The county must also appoint two impartial people to view the road and report what possible issues would result from the closure.
Williams and two others appointed by the court made several visits to Anderson Road before determining it was appropriate to close the road.
Commissioners will vote on the possible closure at their Jan. 23 meeting.
