419 Town Center
In July 2019, the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors adopted the 419 Town Center Plan. Development of new design guidelines provide further guidance on the design of both public and private investments and improvements in the study area. The design guidelines will help shape the built environment, meet community expectations, provide a vibrant public realm, and maintain a consistent character and high quality of design and aesthetic. On September 28, 2022 the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors approved an amendment to the 419 Town Center Plan, which is a component of the Roanoke County Comprehensive Plan, by incorporating the Roanoke County 419 Town Center Design Guidelines into the 419 Town Center Plan.
The 419 Town Center will redefine Roanoke County's largest retail destination as a vibrant, walkable community.
Across the U.S., auto-oriented commercial strips are rapidly changing into pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use town centers and main street settings. With its easy access, strong demographics, and several large property owners, the 419 Town Center is ideal for this kind of redevelopment.

The bottom of the page contains a map of the current project statuses for projects located in the 419 Town Center Plan area. In addition to the three projects shown above, progress continues with three other multimodal transportation projects located in and near the 419 Town Center Plan area:
1. Improvements completed in 2021 along Route 419 between Ogden Road and Route 220 will be extended along Route 419 to Starkey Road with Phase 2 of the Route 419 Widening, Safety and Multimodal Improvement Project. The project is anticipated to include:
- Conversion of the shoulders to shared through/right turn lanes;
- Sidewalks along both sides of the road;
- Bicycle lanes along both sides of the road;
- Intersection changes to a Thru-Cut configuration with pedestrian signals and crosswalks at the Starkey Road intersection; and
- Intersection changes at Ridge Top Road to a Restricted Crossing U-Turn, which is similar to the intersection at Route 419 and Bernard Drive.
Preliminary Engineering is just beginning. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has contacted property owners along and near the project and will be collecting additional field information in the coming weeks. Construction is anticipated in 2027.
2. The Route 220 Signal Improvements project will improve four signalized intersections along Route 220 using an Innovative Intersection design known as a Thru-Cut. Intersections will also include pedestrian signals and crosswalks. The changes will restrict movements straight across intersections from side street to side street, while keeping right and left turns at each intersection. The result will be more “green time” for all traffic signal phases. These intersections include:
- Southern Hills Drive/Valley Avenue
- Pheasant Ridge Road/Crossbow Circle
- Buck Mountain Road/Stable Road
- Clearbrook Village Lane/Indian Grave Road
This project is also in the Right-of-Way phase and construction is anticipated in 2024.
3. Construction will be starting in March on the Starkey Road/Buck Mountain Road Roundabout planned to replace the current "T" intersection at Starkey Road and Buck Mountain Road. Sidewalks and crosswalks will connect the roundabout to adjacent properties and to the Branderwood subdivision. The roundabout will improve traffic flow and safety at this busy intersection.
Construction is anticipated to be complete in Spring 2024.
