Improvements being made on Pine Street

The city of Bourbon has been busy for the past several months making improvements along Pine Street, installing new curb and gutter and replacing water lines, as part of a downtown revitalization being funded through a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant. Workers are currently replacing all the main sewer lines and many of the water lines along Pine Street before the entire street is repaved. Officials hope to get all that work completed before fall.
