VDOT Will Rate the “Scaled-Down” US 460 Project

Richmond Times-Dispatch reports, “The Virginia Department of Transportation will rate a scaled-down version of the proposed overhaul of U.S. 460 from Suffolk to just west of Zuni, despite the fact that no local governments or regional organizations appear willing to champion the project.” The Commonwealth Transportation Board voted unanimously on October 19 to submit the project to the Smart Scale rating process. The report adds that VDOT officials this week estimated the project will cost between $300 million and $400 million.
