Operation R.I.P. Potholes update: WVDOH crews surpass 5,000 miles of roadway patched!


CHARLESTON, WV – West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) road crews have patched over 5,000 miles of road during an early patching blitz.

Since Gov. Jim Justice and the WVDOH announced Operation R.I.P. Potholes on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, WVDOH road crews have patched 57,171 potholes along 5,094 miles of road. Pothole patching typically doesn’t begin until the first week of April.
WVDOH officials worked with asphalt plant owners in St. Albans, Morgantown, and Princeton to open early this season, allowing road crews to make permanent pothole repairs with hot asphalt. As crews are out patching, they are finding that some stretches of road may have numerous potholes to patch, while some stretches may have none.
Asphalt plants are beginning to open in other parts of the state now, with the rest expected to open the first week of April.
