Transportation Cabinet Says FBI Is Investigating Contractors


The FBI is investigating contractors who have worked with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

State officials say they received a grand jury subpoena regarding antitrust allegations involving state contractors dating back to 2010. Last week, state officials posted a letter on the cabinet's website telling contractors to preserve all documents related to construction, paving or asphalt projects.

Cabinet spokeswoman Naitore Djibenou said officials are "fully cooperating and assisting the Department of Justice with its investigation." She noted the cabinet was not the target of the investigation.

An FBI spokesman, citing Department of Justice policy, would not confirm or deny the existence of an investigation.
