Officials estimate the state will spend nearly $6 million to clean up state roads in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Crews had to fight to keep roads like East Avenue in the Tucker County town of Thomas open during blizzard conditions. All but a handful of secondary roads had been cleared of snow and debris by Monday morning.
Scott Armstrong used a backhoe to trim trees along W.Va. 612 in Mossy. Transportation officials said private citizens and members of the West Virginia National Guard were a big help in clearing secondary roads following the storm.
