Operation R.I.P. Potholes update: WVDOH passes 40,000 potholes patched along more than 4,500 miles of roadway



Since Gov. Jim Justice and the West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) announced Operation R.I.P. Potholes on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, WVDOH road crews have patched 40,328 potholes along 4,512 miles of road.
As the crow flies, that distance would get you from Charleston west past the Bering Sea and well into eastern Russia, to the south deep into Brazil, or east to Romania.
Gov. Justice and the WVDOH have been taking advantage of unseasonably warm weather to get a head start on the spring pothole patching season. 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.
