The  US 460/Corridor Q  bridge near the VA-KY border is currently considered the top bridge project in the country according to Roads and Bridges Magazine.

The first link is from VDOT's website, but the second is from the Roads and Bridges Magazine's website itself.

Not true. Elkhorn City is only about five miles or so away by highway. Yes, it's a small town, but it's a town. Grundy is also closer than 40 miles by road.

Haysi (where the car I was in during the Pikeville meet ended up before taking VA 83 east back to Grundy) is not that far away either.  The population is less than Elkhorn City, but it is an incorporated town though.

The Virginia CTB gave a briefing at their May meeting on the status of the segments of US 121 and relocated US 460 in Southwestern Virginia.

It's gonna be a while before there is a finished product...

The entirety of the relocated US 460 will finish first: summer 2021.  One small segment is to be finished in 2015 though.
US 121 Coalfields Expwy has segments still with no timelines whatsoever...
