During May’s Special Legislative Session, lawmakers approved $150 million in supplemental funding for additional road paving throughout West Virginia. This is in addition to the $190 million in federal funding the state’s Division of Highways has already received.

In McDowell County, the new appropriation will provide funding for 37 additional roadway paving projects. While estimates are not yet available for all 37 projects, the partial cost thus far totals $3.3 million.
