Kentucky cities are centers of economic and cultural activity. More than half of Kentucky residents live in cities, and many more work and play in cities. Some of the key pieces of infrastructure are bridges, streets, and sidewalks. These are designed and maintained for people to drive, walk, and ride on, and they are vital to the local economies.
Kentucky cities spend over $270 million per year on streets and roads. This includes the construction and reconstruction of city streets as well as snow removal during the winter.
