A new bill could help improve roads all over the Mountain State, if it's passed.

The U.S. Senate has approved legislation that establishes the federal highway budget for the next two years. About $4 million out of that budget would go towards highway projects in our state. Transportation officials say those projects would improve about 27 percent of our highways, which includes roads and bridges.
"Our highway system is important and we rely heavily on federal dollars to be able to maintain, preserve, build new roads and bridges," said Brent Walker, WVDOT Director of Communications.

Even though the Senate passed it's version of the federal highway bill, the U.S. House of Representatives hasn't approved it's final version yet.
