Harsh Winter Eats Most Of The DOH Snow And Ice Budget
Posted Wednesday, April 10th 2013 @ 4am

A harsh winter has eaten most of the West Virginia Department of Transportation's snow and ice removal budget. That will put a dent in the DOH's summer road paving.

The agency might not have any leftover snow removal funds to fill potholes and do other paving work.

Last year, Transportation Secretary Paul Mattox diverted nearly $30 million in leftover snow removal funds to secondary road paving.

DOH Spokesperson Carrie Bly says that the agency has spent $52.7 million of its $58.2 million snow and ice removal budget as of April 3.

Bly says that four of the state's 10 highway districts have overspent their snow and ice removal budgets.
