WASHINGTON — A total of $4.8 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation has been set aside to repair federal roads in Pocahontas, Randolph and Greenbrier counties damaged during the 2016 floods.
News of the funding came from the offices of U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.
“The repairs to these highways will bring back necessary community connections and allow commerce to flow freely across West Virginia so that our state may continue to improve its economy, rebuild our communities, and look to an even brighter future,” Manchin said. “As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for additional resources focused on the economic resilience of our state.”
