Public hearing set for Route 460 Project at Commerce Drive and Leatherwood Lane in Tazewell County

A design public hearing will be held on the proposed plans to improve safety on U.S. Route 460 between Commerce Drive and Leatherwood Lane in Bluefield.

Bristol, Va. – This month, a design public hearing will be held on the proposed plans to improve safety on U.S. Route 460 between Commerce Drive and Leatherwood Lane in Bluefield. 

The open-house, drop-in format public hearing will take place Tuesday, April 25, 2023, from 4-6 p.m. at Bluefield Town Hall, 112 Huffard Drive, Bluefield, Virginia 24605.

The project includes construction of offset left-turn lanes to improve sight distance at the intersection of Route 460 at Commerce Drive and at Leatherwood Lane in Bluefield. It also includes the replacement of the traffic signal at each intersection.

Offset turn lanes increase sight distance by shifting left-turning traffic closer to the oncoming traffic.
