It’s Roanoke County’s unofficial “downtown” but it doesn’t
look like most Main Streets you know. Roanoke County is reimagining Route 419 near Tanglewood as a new
destination for businesses and residents, a place that will
serve pedestrians and cyclists just as well as motorists. 

We need your thoughts about the stores, services, and amenities that will help make this area a distinct and vibrant destination.
