BRUSHFORK - The Mercer County Sheriff's Department will work to reduce accidents and other traffic issues on U.S. 52.

The department was given a federal grant to address the problems on that highway.  The money helped pay for overtime costs for deputies to conduct unlimited DUI patrols and monitor hazardous sections of the roadway.  

One section that's being watched is the intersection of U.S. 52 and Route 123 in Brushfork where several accidents have happened.
