State expects road cleanup after storm to cost $6M

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia officials expect road cleanup following Superstorm Sandy to cost the state $6 million.

The state already has spent more than $4 million to remove downed trees, power lines and snow from roads.

Secretary of Transportation Paul Mattox says that only a handful of roads remain closed.

Mattox says the Federal Emergency Management Agency is starting to assess damage in counties affected by the storm.

The Department of Transportation received nearly $11 million from FEMA to help cover the $14 million cost of cleaning up roads following the June 29 derecho. Mattox says he expects the federal agency will pay for most of the costs of the latest cleanup.
