From The Virginian-Pilot
Virginia officials are in negotiations with the private partner in the planned U.S. 460 road project. The project was pushed forward by former Gov. Bob McDonnell, but fell through. These negotiations are hoped to help recover some of the $300 million that were put toward this project; these funds may be used to help with other more sustainable projects, such as the Route 58 widening.
The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) today approved the location for U.S. 460 corridor improvements, which would span 17 miles from Suffolk to west of Zuni.
The CTB approved a resolution to support the Preferred Alternative that would build a new four-lane divided highway from a new U.S. 460/58 interchange in Suffolk to west of Windsor. From west of Windsor to west of Zuni, the existing U.S. 460 would be upgraded to a four-lane divided highway and include a new bridge across the Blackwater River to eliminate long standing flooding problems.
