A new bridge was completed on Jones Creek Road more than a year ago, but there is still litigation regarding whether the road is private or public.
At a Taylor County Fiscal Court meeting on Tuesday evening, Jones Creek Road resident Scotty Hedgespeth said he didn’t want taxpayer dollars to be spent on a road that he considers being private.
The bridge in question is on Jones Creek Road, near KY 1252. Taylor County Attorney John Bertram called the old bridge “dilapidated.”
The new bridge was completed around November 2015.
