CHARLESTON, West Virginia (WBOY) – An additional $150 million in funding will help the West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) pave an additional 833 miles of road, according to a statement from the Justice government.

Because basic maintenance — filling potholes, cleaning ditches and making sure existing roads are smooth, clean and dry — went so well, according to Virginia’s Secretary of Transportation- West, Jimmy Wriston, many trunk roads are ready to be repaved now, instead of later, which would save them from having to be patched again in the spring.

“The need for this tessellation right now is great,” Wristen said. “Our basic maintenance plan exceeded our budget for paving. These roads are ready to go.

According to Governor Justice’s statement, Wriston has implemented an “aggressive, systematic statewide approach” to make up for years of underinvestment in West Virginia’s highways.
