RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A review panel will meet Thursday to discuss plans to upgrade Route 460.

VDOT has received three proposals that would turn 460 into a four-lane toll road between Prince George County and Suffolk.

The state has been trying for a while to build a 55 mile, four-lane highway just south of the existing road.

The estimated cost of the project is at least $1.4 billion.

We'll let you know what we hear from the panel in our evening shows.
