Washington County plans to spend $25 million over the next five years on road repairs.

County residents will see an increase in road work in the next month by C. William Hetzer Inc. of Hagerstown, and full-scale repairs will start by mid-August, according to a written statement from the county.

C. William Hetzer was the winning bidder on the county's Pavement Maintenance Program contract.

The County Commissioners authorized $3.32 million in road repairs for fiscal year 2006 with the option to use an additional $675,000 from the previous fiscal year's budget, according to the statement.

Twenty-eight sections of 24 roads will be repaired this year.

The county has 850 miles of roads.
