Route 419 Project Map

Construction on a 0.5-mile section of Route 419 (Electric Road) in Roanoke County in front of Tanglewood Mall is anticipated to begin in late July or early August.

The project includes improvements to alleviate congestion and provide safer accommodations for bikers and pedestrians and is expected to be completed in fall 2021.

In lieu of an in-person “Pardon our Dust” meeting to discuss traffic impacts, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has shared information about the project online including a presentation at http://www.virginiadot.org/Route419tanglewood.

Throughout the life of the project on Route 419, drivers should expect barrels and shoulder closures and nighttime lane closures between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Access to some businesses with nighttime hours may be modified at times during construction.
