Roanoke has a new map for its greenway system, including the Roanoke River Greenway and Lick Run Greenway, which run along the river and and out to the Valley View Mall; also the Mill Mountain Greenway, Tinker Creek Greenway, Wolf Creek Greenway, Murry Run Greenway, and the Hanging Rock Battlefield Trail.
Zoom in and click on any of the blue lines that represent a greenway. A popup will appear, with a link to a PDF map of that greenway — which you can then print to take with you.
This is a really nice map. So nice, that it received an Excellence in Regional Transportation Award from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO).
According to NADO President Tim Ware, “Such initiatives are central to fostering economic growth in our nation’s communities by promoting effective transportation networks.”
We agree. We’d also like to offer our thanks, and congratulations, to the Roanoke Valley Allegheny Regional Commission, for doing such a great job.
