VDOT Begins Soil Tests for Future Route 460 Project
Soil evaluations will help with construction planning
The samples will be used by engineers to design the future re-alignment of Route 460.
The tests should not interfere with traffic.
In some cases, it may be necessary for workers to enter private property to access one or more proposed borehole locations.
Property owners will receive prior notification and every effort will be made to restore the area and minimize the time spent on private property.
Approximately 30 days after samples are taken, a member of the soil survey crew will return to inspect the borehole locations.
For more information on soil testing, contact John Deusebio at (757) 924-2681. For more information on the Route 460 alignment visit http://www.virginiadot.org.
