Gov. Jim Justice said he will call the West Virginia Legislature into special session on October 16, 2017.

State officials have commented a legislative framework must first be established in order to get the road projects off the ground.

On October 7, 2017, voters approved a constitutional amendment allowing transportation officials to sell $1.6 billion in general obligation bonds to make up about 60 percent of the governor’s “Roads to Prosperity” program, which he believes will give the West Virginia economy a boost.
