CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The state of West Virginia has put aside an extra $12 million for pothole repairs this year.
A West Virginia Department of Transportation spokeswoman said this is the worst pothole season they've experienced in several years. As a result, they pulled funds from non-emergency projects that can wait.
Hot patching usually begins around mid-April. Since conditions are so bad, though, the DOH wants to start patching as soon as possible.
