Route 460 Location Study
VDOT is responsible for building,
maintaining and operating the state's roads, bridges and tunnels. Virginia has
the third largest state-maintained highway system in the country, just behind
North Carolina and Texas.
Highway Administration (FHWA)
The FHWA is sponsoring this study and will be the lead federal agency. The FHWA provides federal funds to projects and develops regulations, policies, and guidelines to achieve safety, access, economic development, and more. The FHWA staff works together with state and local transportation agencies across the county to ensure America is kept moving--safely, efficiently, economically, and without harm to our environment.
Study Manager: Scott Silsdorf

The PB team is comprised of PB staff and their subconsultants, Michael Baker Jr., Inc., Harris Miller Miller & Hanson, Inc., Intermodal Engineering, LandMark Design Group, Coastal Carolina Research and Cordell & Crumley Communication Strategists.
The FHWA, as the lead agency, has solicited the participation of several other key agencies to serve as cooperating agencies in the EIS process. Each of these cooperating agencies will participate and provide on-going guidance to the Study Team throughout the process.
