“They cannot pour concrete on frozen ground. That’s the essence of where they are. I do know they poured some concrete it looks like today,” Nelson said at Thursday night’s Trigg County Board of Education meeting. “They did put some blankets on the ground, trying to get it to warm up where they can pour on it.”
Nelson, who was there to talk about what will probably be a $60,000 change in the parking lot and driveway portion of the project, said however that with warming weather, work on the project should pick back up. He added that the $60,000 will be reimbursed by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet

Nelson showed the 500-foot widening project to board members. He said the turning lane itself would stack about four or five cars.
