[ARCHIVED] Colonial Avenue Corridor Improvement Project Construction to Begin May 8

Roanoke, VA – Construction work for the Colonial Avenue Corridor Improvement Project, between Virginia Western Community College and Fishburn Park Elementary School, is scheduled to begin on May 8.  As a result, traffic changes will occur on Colonial Avenue from Overland Road to Winding Way Road. The traffic pattern will be reduced to two lanes of travel, with one lane maintained for each direction.  Travel restrictions will be in place for the duration of the project, which is 18 months.  The public is encouraged to avoid any unnecessary travel through this area and to seek alternate routes when possible. 

This project is a collaboration between the City of Roanoke and Virginia Western Community College to complement improvements being made on the campus to include the new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) building.  It is also a partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia, City of Roanoke, and the federal government, and is fully funded with various funding streams to include SMART Scale funding - the new State grant program.

For more information, contact Priscilla Cygielnik in the city’s Engineering Division at 853-2035 or [email protected].
