On March 8, 2017, Roanoke County broke ground on the first phase of the Plantation Road Bicycle, Pedestrian and Streetscape Improvement project. The ceremony took place on the front lawn of BSC Ventures/Double Envelope.
“This project represents a key economic development strategy for the Hollins area in support of some of the County’s largest employers,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Joseph P. McNamara. “Improvements to our commercial corridors create economic opportunities for new investment in Roanoke County.”

The Plantation Road Project began in 2009 and since that time approximately $4.2 million in federal, state and local funds have been allocated for the project. These funds are being used to design and construct Phase I on the west side of Plantation Road which includes: a 10-foot-wide shared-use path from Williamson Road to Walrond Drive; street trees; curb and gutter; and a “Welcome to Hollins” sign. The anticipated completion date is June 2018.
