CHARLESTON, W.Va – The West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) plans to use $150 million in supplemental funding requested by Gov. Jim Justice to pave more than 830 miles of roads.
Some of those are in the Eastern Panhandle. For a List of Paving Projects Click Here:
“The need for this paving right now is great,” said West Virginia Transportation Secretary Jimmy Wriston, P.E. “Our core maintenance plan has outperformed our budget for paving. These roads are ready to go.”
Core maintenance – filling potholes, clearing ditches and making sure existing roads are smooth, clean and dry – has gone so well that many state roads are ready to be repaved now, instead of later. If those routes aren’t paved soon, they’ll have to be patched again in the spring
