I-81 CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENT PLAN MEETING TO BE HELD WITH FALL TRANSPORTATION MEETING ON OCTOBER 25 IN ROANOKE

SALEM – In conjunction with the regularly scheduled fall transportation meeting for the Salem District, the third and final meeting in the series to receive input on the I-81 Corridor Improvement Plan will be held on October 25 at the Holiday Inn Valley View located at 3315 Ordway Drive NW in Roanoke.

Prior to the Interstate 81 meeting, the fall transportation meeting will start at 2 p.m.  Attendees can view displays to learn about transportation planning, interact with subject matter experts, and review the proposed local and regional projects that have been submitted for scoring through SMART SCALE, an objective, data-driven prioritization process to score projects according to critical transportation needs.

The Interstate 81 meeting will begin at approximately 3 p.m. and will focus on recommended projects and funding sources.   Following a presentation, there will be an opportunity for the public to provide comments about the I-81 study. Individual formal comment will be limited to three minutes.

Feedback will be considered as team members finalize the I-81 corridor study and prepare a draft plan report in the fall.  Recommendations will be presented to the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) for adoption prior to the opening of the 2019 General Assembly session.

For those who cannot attend the meeting, comments can be submitted as follows:
