About the Study
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have initiated an Environmental Assessment for the U.S. Route 460/58/13 corridor, examining potential transportation improvements in the Cities of Chesapeake and Suffolk.
The area of interest for this study includes the segment of U.S. Route 460/58/13 from near the Bowers Hill interchange of Interstate 664 to the interchange of Portsmouth Boulevard (Business U.S. Route 460) and the Suffolk Northern Bypass (U.S. Route 460/58/13).
The study will be presenting concepts and strategies for potential alternatives to address existing and future transportation needs in the corridor for the next 20 years.
Recognizing the potential need for improvements along the U.S. Route 460/58/13 corridor, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) Board approved the U.S. Route 460/58/13 Connector, including interchanges at the SPSA Regional Landfill and Hampton Roads Executive Airport, as a regional priority project in October 2013. HRTPO subsequently approved these improvements as a candidate project and included them in the amended Hampton Roads 2034 Long-Range Transportation Plan in September 2014.
