Thought this might give some hope for the future. Although, upon reflection, I hope the small towns and businesses are benefited and not damaged by it. A new 460 to begin construction next year:
RICHMOND — The commonwealth released this week a detailed financial structure to design, build and finance a new Route 460 that would stretch 55 miles from Prince George County to the city of Suffolk and includes seven interchanges to provide access to local communities along the corridor. The new road would be financed through a combination of public dollars and tolls, while the existing Route 460 remains free.
“Route 460 is on track to begin construction next year,” said Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Commissioner Greg Whirley. “VDOT continues to conduct business in a transparent manner by making publicly available the latest contract documents to select a partner and bring the project to construction. The new Route 460 will bring tremendous benefits to Virginia including safety improvements, a faster hurricane evacuation route, significant job and business opportunities as well as greatly enhanced movement for trucks coming from the Port of Virginia and better connectivity for the military.”
