RICHMOND, Virginia — A Pennsylvania-based company has taken over operation of a privately run, state-owned toll road in Virginia.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( ) reports that DBi Services has replaced Transurban. The Australian company had operated Pocahontas 895 since 2006.

Transurban's board voted in June 2013 to transfer its agreement with the state to a group of European banks that hold $300 million in debt on the project. The project also must repay a $150 million federal loan.

The 8.8-mile toll road runs between Henrico and Chesterfield counties.

Transurban spokesman Mike McGurk says the company has worked with stakeholders to find a solution that positions the project to be successful while having the least impact.
