Some road projects this summer could suffer after what’s happened this winter. Those include paving, buying new equipment, and paying workers overtime. That;s because VDOT has spent a lot more for snow removal than what they put in the budget. The money will have to be taken from what’s been set aside for maintenance. Stacy Londrey of VDOT says the agency¬†already knows the snow removal budget has been exceeded by a long shot.
