More than a dozen roads are still being fixed from Tropical Storm Michael’s damage
Six months after Tropical Storm Michael hit Virginia, 17 roads around the state are still in the process of being repaired.
Michael hit Virginia in mid-October, killing six people across the state and leaving behind millions of dollars of damage to personal and public property.
State road repairs have been “extensive” and are estimated to have cost $25 million, said Lindsay LeGrand, spokeswoman for the Virginia Department of Transportation. Crews have worked on fixing pipes and washed-out roads, which can cause sinkholes.
Tropical Storm Michael caused the most severe flood-related damage in the central part of the state and Southside.
