The Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board approved $9 million in federal funding to construct a second railroad track along Va. 164 and Interstate 664. A second track was planned originally as part of an earlier $60 million project that connected APM Terminals to Norfolk Southern and CSX in Suffolk, but high costs made the second track infeasible at the time. Additionally, the $9 million will help advance construction for a connection to APM Terminals' port facility in Portsmouth.
