FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) - Governor Andy Beshear announced a more than $2 million loan was approved for the city of Pineville for upgrades to their utility system.

The funding from the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority will go toward separating the existing storm and sanitary sewer systems in the area surrounding the courthouse downtown.

“We are excited to get this project moving after years of hard work,” said Pineville Mayor Scott Madon in a news release. “It’s especially satisfying and gratifying during these tough times and we really appreciate Gov. Beshear and everyone at DLG and KIA for their help making this project happen.”

When the project is finished, thousands of feet of new sewer lines will be installed along with new curbs and sidewalks.
