BEDFORD COUNTY (WSLS 10) - Efforts to improve safety on a dangerous stretch of Route 460 are moving forward.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board has asked for state money to cover the reconstruction and realignment of Route 460 East near Montvale.

The project is expected to cost nearly $19 million and VDOT says it will know if the project will be funded by June.

The project will improve safety by addressing 460's S curves. The curves have caused accidents in the past.

In 2012, a tractor-trailer crash dumped fuel on the road, which closed it for four months, according to VDOT.
