5/3 Paving Plans (Tentative)

Today, Southern West Virginia Paving plans to mill Riverview Drive and the alley behind the YMCA. Milling might continue on 5th Street, between Davis Avenue and Railroad Avenue, time allowing.

The Southern West Virginia Paving Company’s blacktop plant has broken down. If it is put back online soon enough before rain starts, there might be time to pave Bridgewater and Riverview.

More Information on Spring 2022 Paving

This month, Southern West Virginia Paving will be milling, paying, and/or apply overlay to certain streets and alleys in all five wards.

It is usually not practical to announce in advance which streets will be affected on which days, because work plans can shift on a dime in response to changing weather, contractor personnel and equipment availability, and breakdowns. Please keep an eye out for temporary “no parking” signs and monitor this site and our Facebook page. We will provide as much information as possible, as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and flexibility. (For more information about paving in Elkins, including how streets are selected, see this FAQ page.)


Paving Work Starts Monday

It’s that time of year again!

On Monday, at 7 a.m., Southern West Virginia Paving will begin milling and paving in various areas in all five wards. Street Department personnel will post “no parking” notices on Sunday on the streets that will be affected first.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of this work and how often plans must change in response to weather and other factors, it is not possible for us to announce an overall schedule for this work.

Please keep an eye out for temporary “no parking” signs on Sunday. We will post updates with more detailed information as possible.
