FAIRMONT — Now that spring is officially here, road crews have been paving and fixing roads around the area.

Mike Roncone, Marion County highway administrator for the West Virginia Department of Transportation’s Division of Highways, said paving and fixing potholes has begun.

“The plants have started opening up and provide us with some hot mix,” he said. “We get the majority of our hot mix out of Clarksburg and they’re open now, so we’re starting to fill potholes.”

Crews will be working from now until fall as they tar and chip roads to fill in potholes. Roncone said because winter lingered for so long, the DOH will have to play catch up.
