The second round of SMART SCALE (formerly HB2) project applications are underway. Localities, planning districts and other stakeholders in our region have until September 30th to submit transportation projects for scoring. After projects are ranked and scored, they will be sent to the Commonwealth Transportation Board for funding consideration. Potential projects include improvements to I-81, Colonial and Orange Avenues, VA 419 and U.S. 220 and extensions to the Greenway.
The Roanoke Regional Chamber will continue to support the alignment of transportation funding to meet the economic development needs in our region.
