Legislators have approved a number of measures to repair roadways in the state in recent weeks and a local lawmaker secured money for the Riverbend.  State Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton) helped pass HB 3794 before the end of the spring session securing $13.8-million in state funding to aid in repairing Route 3 in Jersey County.

Beiser calls the legislation a "win-win" for the local community. He says the repairs will make the roadway safer and put a number of people back to work.
