beshear wave 300HENDERSON, Ky. (5/30/13) – $23 million and 160 new jobs, the opportunity to expand recycling services through a pair of grants totaling $1.4 million, and new design of “a wider and more modern road” meant to provide “safer access” to Henderson Community College along a one-mile section of U.S. 60 near the school, Gov. Steve Beshear announced during a series of three visits in Henderson on Wednesday.

At his final stop, Beshear told the audience the Transportation Cabinet will design a four-lane stretch of highway extending from the intersection with Ky. Hwy. 425 all the way to the community college facility. It will also include a center turn lane and a bicycle lane.

Beshear said the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has budgeted a half a million dollars for the project.

Earlier in the day, Beshear announced a $900,000 award for the Tri-County Alliance Recycling Center and another $500,000 for the Hugh Sandefur Training Center. The grant for Tri-County will provide for the construction of a 3,000 square foot recycling center in Henderson “that will be able to collect, process, and market recyclables for all of the counties” served by the facility. It is expected the construction of the new recycling complex will allow for increased collection of recyclables from other counties in the region.

The grant to the training center will allow for the development of a new electronic waste recycling program, according to a news release from the governor’s office.
