People have been working on this for years, and they're making good
Notably, Google has even experimentally deployed a PQ ciphersuite
in Chrome (that uses elliptic-curve cryptography in parallel with
Alkim et al.'s "new hope" algorithm).
If this works well and research continues to support this approach,
it should be standardized as a ciphersuite in TLS.
