CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia transportation officials say they've received a low bid of $57.8 million for building a nearly three-mile, four-lane road to connect two highways to a planned development at a reclaimed coal mine in southern West Virginia.

The Department of Transportation says all bids will be reviewed and the contract awarded in the next several days.

The apparent low bidder is Bizzack Construction LLC, of Lexington, Kentucky.
