Two years after being cited by the Transportation Cabinet for delaying work on a road connecting US 23 and the Pikeville airport to illegally mine coal along the road's right-of-way, Elmo Greer & Sons of London has been fined $125,000. The company had been allowed rights to any coal uncovered during the construction of the road; however, Greer has been found to have illegally mined coal from a 40 acre waste area along the 2.7-mile road.
