The West Virginia Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that the next round of Governor Jim Justice’s Secondary Roads Initiative is underway.

Now through December 31, all 55 of West Virginia’s counties will see mowing, patching, paving, and more to their secondary roads.

In a news release, Transportation Secretary Byrd White noted it was important to his office and the governor’s office to provide this maintenance in an “open and transparent manner.”

The subject of fixing and maintaining West Virginia’s secondary roads was a point of contention and passionate floor speeches during the 2019 regular West Virginia Legislative session.

The full list of new projects, scheduled to be completed by December 31, 2019, can be viewed by going to www.transportation.wv.gov and clicking on Secondary Road Maintenance Initiative.
