Construction of Route 460/121 Poplar Creek Phase A in Buchanan County is underway. The highway will be a two-lane, limited access highway, that will have truck climbing lanes where needed.

Route 460/121 Poplar Creek Phase A travels from the east end of Route 460/121 Hawks Nest section to Route 604 (Poplar Creek Road).

Impacts to motorists are minimal because the majority of the work is on a new location; however, be alert to the temporary relocation of a portion of Route 604 (Poplar Creek Road). Pay close attention to signs directing traffic in the area. Additionally, the project created a permanent change for Route 614 (Woods Fork). Access to the north and south ends of Route 614 are via Routes 609 (Bulls Creek Road) and Route 604 (Polar Creek Road), respectively, which connect to Route 460 west of Grundy.

Route 460/121 will provide a modern and safe transportation system for the area and provide better access to health care, open the region for economic development and improve interstate commerce. Additionally, motorists should see a significant reduction of travel times.
