Willingness to Hold a Public Hearing

Find out about a proposal to provide a mid-block pedestrian crosswalk on Gus Nicks Boulevard, to connect the Glade Creek Greenway to the Gish Mill Property (formerly Holdren’s Country Store), as approved by the Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) on July 2, 2020, and again on May 27, 2021, and by Vinton Town Council on March 1, 2022, respectively. The Project will reduce the likelihood of accidents involving pedestrians attempting to cross Gus Nicks Boulevard, a very heavily-traveled right-of-way. The Project will provide a safer connection for pedestrians and/or greenway users from Glade Creek Greenway, located to the south of Gus Nicks Boulevard to the Gish Mill Property, located to the north of Gus Nicks Boulevard.
