Thank you so much Piedmont environmental council for doing so much to make sure our taxpayer dollars get spent on road projects that benefit other communities and not ours!

Is this where the NEW GAS TAX money is going? The gas price is going down long enough to get new higher tax on gas and then watch it go back up. Come on people stop driving and shopping and wasteing gas so they will have so much on there hands then they will not know what to do with. Stop buying in stores and do it on line and that away you will be out of traffic and make the prices going down farther because it will hurt the stores sales and they will get it down lower to get you back into the stores. Don't play there games or we will all loose. They are putting the money on roads where over half of the people don't never use and it is mostly out of towners using it. Put a toll booth up on those roads and let that money take care of that part of the road it is set up at and then set others to cover that road area.

I think the 460 project is to try and relieve the traffic problem on I-64 between Richmond and Hampton Roads. Anyone who has to travel the mess that is I-64 would welcome an optional route.

What a waste of our tax dollars. The road will run parallel to 460 with no tolls. Why would you want to pay to drive this road when there is another road that has no tolls.

This is part of the stimulus funding that the Bobvernor has been holding up for years. Its not needed and any funding should be applied to I-64 projects. Road funding projects benefits the contractors.

I would gladly pay a toll to have a straight shot to Hampton Roads without all the feeder road traffic coming and going.
