SUFFOLK -- Plans for a new, tolled highway out of Hampton Roads are a big step closer to reality.

According to the Virginian-Pilot, a state transportation board has approved the use of more than $900 million in public bonds for the creation of an alternative 55-mile stretch of US 460.

The corridor will connect Suffolk to Petersburg, and will cost $3.69 for cars to drive the entire stretch of the new highway.

Construction should begin in 2014.
