McConnell Helps Secure Nearly $3 Million to Improve Roadways Surrounding Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport


Senator McConnell championed RAISE funding in both the annual appropriations process and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced today the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will award $2,941,250 to the Boone County Fiscal Court to improve and modernize existing infrastructure along the Limaburg Road corridor in Northern Kentucky. Funded through RAISE, a nationally competitive program administered by the DOT, today’s federal funding will help implement Boone County’s Limaburg Road Complete Streets Project.

Senator McConnell, a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, contacted the Secretary of Transportation in support of Boone County Fiscal Court’s federal application and championed RAISE funding in both the annual appropriations process and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which the Senator shepherded to Senate passage three years ago.

This project will expand economic opportunities, improve safety, and enhance connectivity for workers and residents traveling along Limaburg Road, which borders Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).

“I was proud to work with community leaders in Boone County to secure this RAISE grant and to help the Boone County Fiscal Court upgrade Limaburg Road, a key corridor adjoining CVG that promises to spur new economic opportunities throughout the region,” said Senator McConnell. “Projects like this are exactly why I supported the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which dedicates resources to overhauling our roadways and improving traffic safety in cities across the country.”

“This RAISE grant will be transformational for citizens and businesses in Boone County. This investment helps improve our road system and enhance safety, resulting in more efficient travel and spurring development at CVG airport. I’m grateful to Senator McConnell for his help securing this grant and continued work for Boone County,” said Boone County Judge Executive Gary Moore.
