US 460 Construction Projects Proceeding.

Right of way acquisition and utility relocation efforts have been ongoing for several years in order to continue the construction of much needed US 460 from US 23 in Yeager to the Breaks Interstate Park in Virginia. The entire US 460 corridor should be completed within 5-10years.

The remaining sections are in the right of way acquisition and utility relocation phases and construction lettings will be scheduled as funding is received.

Project Description

The US 460 reconstruction project will provide an alternate route for US 460 traffic from US 23 near Yeager, Kentucky to the Breaks Interstate Park near Breaks, Virginia. This new four-lane partially controlled access highway will increase travel speeds and decrease travel time while providing a safe route within this corridor. Interchanges have been proposed at US 23, Greasy Creek Road, KY 195 at Marrowbone, and at KY 80 near Elkhorn City. The reconstruction being developed by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will tie in at VA 80 in Buchanan County, Virginia. The Virginia Department of Transportation is in the process of developing plans to connect this segment of US 460 to the proposed Coalfields Expressway approximately 5 miles into Virginia.
