Gov. Justice Announces $20M in Paving Projects Across West Virginia

HARRISON COUNTY, WV — Gov. Jim Justice recently joined leaders with the West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) for an event at North Central West Virginia Airport, where he announced that more than $20 million will be spent on paving projects, all across the state, as part of the Governor's Roads To Prosperity initiative.

"Not only are we going to complete $20 million-worth of paving projects, but we're aiming to complete them within 45 days," Justice said. "It's absolutely unbelievable, and I'm so proud of our Department of Transportation and all we've been able to accomplish thanks to our groundbreaking Roads To Prosperity program."

During the event at NCWV Airport, Gov. Justice, WVDOT Secretary Byrd White, and Deputy Secretary Jimmy Wriston announced several new paving projects scheduled to take place over the next 45 days in North Central West Virginia. A total of $2.6 million in paving work will be completed within the West Virginia Division of Highways' District 4 counties of Doddridge, Harrison, Marion, Monongalia, Preston, and Taylor.

In just the past 16 months, more than 300 miles of District 4 roadways have been paved. Additionally, more than 3,000 miles-worth of patching has been completed in District 4 in the same timeframe.

"We've already done an incredible amount of work. But, you know, as West Virginians, there's an incredible amount we can still do," Justice said.

The anticipated completion date for the new statewide paving projects is late September 2020.

"Gov. Justice's vision to make our roads better and his leadership in transportation infrastructure has not only allowed us to deliver on our goals for fixing the roads, but has also allowed Secretary White and myself to restructure and get out even more projects," Wriston said.
