CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Crews in West Virginia are planning a multimillion-dollar effort to fix pothole damage across the state.
Successive heavy winter storms this year have taken a harsh toll on roads. And transportation officials say the pothole are the worst its maintenance crews have seen in years.
Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox met with senior officials in the state's 10 highways districts in early February to hash out a strategy to patch the pothole problem.
The state has spent an average of $18 million a year on pothole repair in the last three years.
The Charleston Daily Mail reports that $9 million already has been spent on the program during the current fiscal year, which began July 1.
Officials are diverting an additional $12 million aimed strictly at fixing potholes.
