Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

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).

As part of the project, a permanent change for Route 614 (Woods Fork) has taken effect.

Poplar Creek Phase A will split a portion of Route 614 and cul-de-sacs will be added on either end of Route 614 where it ends at the new highway, approximately 2.75 miles from Route 609 at Bull Creek and 1.25 mile from Route 604 at Poplar Creek.

Access to the north and south ends of Route 614 will be via Routes 609 (Bull Creek Road) and 604 (Poplar Creek Road), respectively, which connect to Route 460 west of Grundy.

Route 460/121 will generate economic development, supplement the interstate system, connect Appalachia to the interstate system, and provide access to areas within the region as well as to markets in the rest of the nation.
