Gov. Justice to announce secondary roads plan next Wednesday
CHARLESTON, WV– On Wednesday, March 13, 2019, Gov. Jim Justice will announce a plan to significantly accelerate repairs and maintenance to West Virginia’s secondary roads.
“There is no doubt the Department of Transportation is doing great work on our Roads to Prosperity projects, but our secondary roads aren’t being addressed with the urgency needed,” Gov. Justice said. “This is the issue that we will address with this plan, and secondary roads will be the #1 priority of the department. These roads have been neglected for nearly two decades, and that’s not going to continue on my watch. The people of West Virginia deserve well-maintained roads.”
The time and location of the press conference will be announced next week.
