WV Capital Officials Upset Left Out of Paving Plan

Charleston officials are frustrated by the Department of Transportation's omission of state-owned streets in the city from its annual paving plan.

West Virginia's capital also was left out of last year's paving plan. City engineer Chris Knox tells the Charleston Daily Mail that the city has patched some of the worst state-owned streets. But it can only do so much.

All or part of about 50 streets in Charleston are owned by the state. But many residents don't know that and call the city to complain about potholes.

Department of Transportation spokesman Brent Walker says the agency is doing the best it can with the resources it has.
