Road conditions will soon be getting better for people living in Belmont County.
The County Commission has approved $1 million in county funds to be used for road paving.
At the end of the paving season the commission will have given the Engineering Department a total of $2.1 million for paving.
According to commissioner Mark Thomas this is one of the biggest pavement seasons ever in Belmont county.
Thomas said, “between private entities that we have worked with and the county, 50 miles of roads will have been paid this year. We have 109 miles of total paved road in the county so 25% of county roads will have been paved in 2015.”
Usually, the Engineering Department receives their budget from Gas Tax and License Plate fees.
