VDOT seeks comments on study for new trail to connect Roanoke Valley and NRV

Study information available online with comments accepted through December 1

SALEM – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is seeking public comments about a study that is under way to consider a new multi-use path called the Valley to Valley Trail that would connect the Roanoke Valley to the New River Valley.

This new trail would create a single cohesive trail network by connecting the Roanoke River Greenway in Roanoke, the Huckleberry Trail in Blacksburg and Christiansburg, the Radford Riverway Trail and the New River Trail State Park.

The study will help to determine a recommended alignment with sections that could be developed in individual phases.

VDOT has posted a recorded presentation about the study along with an online survey on the project website at https://www.virginiadot.org/valleytovalleytrail.

Comments will be received through December 1, 2021. Citizens can provide comments through the online survey or by mailing them to Michael Gray, Virginia Department of Transportation, 731 Harrison Avenue, Salem VA 24153.
