Spring paving to include 26 projects, 4 miles of roads

HUNTINGTON -- Spring paving in Huntington will begin in the near future with approximately $800,000 in paving projects.

Paving occurs in the fall and spring in Huntington. City Council members solicit paving requests from constituents and submit their lists to the City of Huntington’s Public Works Department. The requests are reviewed with the West Virginia Division of Highways on a number of factors, including traffic volume and road conditions.

The paving list for this spring includes 26 individual paving projects totaling 4.07 miles. After spring paving is completed, the City of Huntington will have paved 62 roadways totaling 10.79 miles and costing approximately $2.1 million for the 2022 fiscal year. The City of Huntington has paved 69.3 miles of roads totaling $17,749,006 since 2014. 

The 2023 city budget that Mayor Steve Williams proposed and City Council approved includes $2.6 million for paving. The 2023 budget year begins July 1, 2022, and ends June 30, 2023. The purpose of the spending increase in the paving budget for fiscal year 2023 is to initiate steps toward the goal of establishing a 10-year paving cycle for all city-maintained roadways in Huntington.
