July 27, 2016

Congressman Andy Barr (R-KY) today congratulated the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government for securing a federal grant worth more than $14 million to support the Town Branch Commons Corridor project in downtown Lexington from the Department of Transportation.  Congressman Barr supported the project through letters of support, phone calls to Administration officials, and working with Lexington Mayor Jim Gray’s office.

“The Town Branch Commons will help further revitalize downtown Lexington, bring in more visitors, and support jobs which will benefit not only the city, but also the entire region,” said Congressman Barr.  “I appreciate the work of my staff and working with former Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson in the White House in support of this important project.  I applaud the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government and all those who worked hard to secure this competitive grant.”
