RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond area residents will soon have a smoother ride to work.

Virginia’s Department of Transportation says it’s planning to resurface more than 1,500 lane miles of state-maintained roads in the area over the next several months.

The department said Friday that the state will spend about $125 million on the resurfacing effort between April and November.

Steven McNeely, district maintenance engineer for the department, says this year’s paving program is the region’s largest ever. He says that will allow the department to make major improvements to area roadways and provide for “smoother rides around the Richmond region.”
