We focus our actions and activities upon improving the appearance, ride-ability, and safety of the City's streets and rights-of-way thereby enhancing the City’s image, mobility, and property values which are all important factors in attracting and retaining citizens.
We endeavor to implement Roanoke's comprehensive plan by providing a safe and attractive environment for all right-of-way users. We believe that well-maintained streets having appropriate pedestrian and bicycle accommodations, smooth surfaces, good drainage, as well as appropriate traffic signs and markings play a vital part in improving the City’s economic base.

Traffic Safety Campaign
Working together to make the City of Roanoke a Bicycle-friendly city
The 2023 Roanoke Traffic Safety Campaign is happening June 10 through July 21! The Change Lanes to Pass campaign aims to reduce car and bicycle collisions by making sure all Roanokers know about the Virginia state law requiring drivers to change lanes when passing, and also to give 3 feet minimum when passing.
