STUDY TEAM PRESENTS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ROUTE 419 CORRIDOR
Citizens encouraged to attend meeting December 3
SALEM – The Roanoke Valley Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a citizen information meeting to present recommendations to address transportation needs along the Route 419 corridor from Route 311 to Route 220 in the Roanoke area.
The meeting will be held Thursday, December 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gymnasium of the Brambleton Recreation Center located at 3738 Brambleton Avenue in Roanoke.
Representatives from the MPO, VDOT and the study team will be available to answer questions and receive comments regarding this study to determine how to make travel along the Route 419 corridor safer and more efficient.
The recommendations presented at this meeting were developed as a result of public input gathered in the spring 2009. Input from the community, especially those who travel or live and work within the corridor, is extremely important to the success of the study. To review materials prior to the meeting, a draft of the study can be found at http://www.rvarc.org/419/419plan.htm.
