Recent rock and mud slides are straining the West Virginia Department of Transportation's maintenance fund.
A section of W.Va. Route 3 near Sundial remains closed while crews remove three large boulders that fell onto the road on Friday.
Walker says cleaning up a mudslide that cut off access to a road in Logan County earlier this month also will be expensive.
He says the DOT's maintenance fund could go over budget this year. If that occurs, other projects such as resurfacing would be affected.
