HUNTINGTON — Spring paving in Huntington will begin in the near future, according to city officials.

Paving usually occurs in the fall and spring in Huntington. This past fall, paving projects totaling 4.04 miles that cost $950,000 were completed. This spring, approximately $1.15 million in paving projects will be completed, bringing the 2021 fiscal year total spending on paving to $2.1 million, said city Communications Director Bryan Chambers in a news release.

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 spring includes 40 individual paving projects totaling 6.3 miles. After spring paving is completed, the City of Huntington will have paved 51.79 miles of roads totaling $14,466,255 since 2014.

The fiscal year 2022 budget that City Council approved last month includes $1.6 million for paving. The city’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.

The paving projects that either have already been completed or will be completed, weather pending, are:
