The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is developing the U.S. Route 460 Corridor Improvements Project (Project) to improve the approximately 55 mile corridor between Petersburg and Suffolk, Virginia.
VDOT, in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) published the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS). The study evaluates potential social, economic and environmental impacts of five alternatives to improve transportation on the U.S. Route 460 corridor.
The Draft SEIS evaluates the following five alternatives as well as a no-build alternative.
Alternative 1: A four-lane divided road that runs south of the existing U.S. Route 460 and could be tolled.
Alternative 2: A four-lane divided road that runs along the existing U.S. Route 460, with six bypasses around the existing towns. The bypasses could be tolled or not tolled.
Alternative 3: A four-lane divided road that runs north of the existing U.S. Route 460 and could be tolled.
Alternative 4: A four-lane road along the existing U.S. Route 460 with improvements to meet standards for medians, shoulders and intersections.
Alternative 5: An eight-lane road along the existing corridor with an expressway in the center, bypasses at the towns, and local access roadway to the outside.The Project team appreciates your patience and cooperation as we perform our task of planning and designing improved transportation facilities for your community and the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
