Help complete the East Roanoke River Greenway! Roanoke County and VDOT are working on the potential future alignment of the Greenway from Roanoke City to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Funding for this project is dependent on demonstrated community support, so the more people we can get to take the survey and say “yes, I want to see this happen”, the more likely it will be that the necessary funding will be made available. This will be a pretty unique section of the Greenway, winding through the river gorge towards Niagara Dam, before heading under the Blue Ridge Parkway and then on to Explore Park. Work on the section near Blue Ridge Parkway will start next year, and the goal is to continue on to Explore Park by 2025. That will leave the portion that is the focus of this survey as the missing link to connect the Roanoke River Greenway all the way from Salem to Explore Park. This project has long been talked about, now is the chance to help make it a reality. The survey closes July 15th, so don’t wait too long to share your thoughts!
