Despite the shadow of the COVID-19 virus, vital road construction and maintenance will be ongoing in West Virginia, the governor said.

“We are happy in these very difficult times to be able to continue working on our roads and bridges as we move forward on modernizing West Virginia’s transportation network,” Justice said.

“These construction projects and the jobs they create will help us enormously in the weeks and months ahead as we get the state’s economic engine started again. Also, we are very, very pleased that the overwhelming majority of these bids were awarded to West Virginia contractors.”

Three of the governor's Roads to Prosperity projects and one General Obligation Bond project were among those awarded as part of the bid letting, which took place April 14.

Department of Transportation Secretary Byrd White lauded the governor for initiating the historic transportation program.
