staff issues slowing road repairs

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia officials say staff problems are slowing down road repairs and are looking for more ways to hire to increase corrections and maintenance.

New outlet reports asked Gov. Jim Justice on each of the 10 Department of Transport areas to carry out secondary road maintenance as a priority among workers shortages and equipment. He said at a news conference Tuesday that the state has been destroyed and laminated more than 2,000 miles (3,220 kilometers) in the last month.

Area 2 officers met on Monday in Huntington to discuss funding and projects.

Republic of Del Daniel Daniel Linville from Cabell County says that there is a long problem with a recruitment problem with some levels of bureaucracy. The Vice Chair of the Technology and Infrastructure Committee states that it will create legislation following a review of the department's engagement to help it make it more effective.
