Workshop April 21st – Route 419 Corridor Future

The Roanoke Valley Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, in association with the Virginia Department of Transportation is conducting a planning study for the Route 419 corridor, and you are cordially invited to attend.

Route 419 is a 9.5-mile, state highway that extends west from the US 220 Expressway in southern Roanoke County, along the limits of the City of Roanoke, then northwest through the City of Salem, and terminating  just north of I-81. Your input as a city resident, city official, business owner, and/or property owner is very important to this planning effort, and will be used to help shape the vision for the future of Route 419.

The process will begin with a public workshop where you will have an opportunity to share your vision for the future of the corridor.  The results of this and a future public workshop will help guide future actions and decisions by the community and the Commonwealth regarding the corridor’s future.

A professional facilitator has been hired to lead the workshop and help ensure that your opinions are heard.
