Roanoke Valley Transportation Plan

Transportation Blueprint

The Roanoke Valley Transportation Plan, developed by RVARC, is a comprehensive long-range strategy and capital improvement program. This plan, updated every five years, guides the effective investment of public funds in multimodal transportation facilities, including highways, transit, non-motorized, and multimodal systems. The development process involves collaboration with various stakeholders, encompassing a vision, goals, objectives, and performance measures, ensuring a performance-based planning and programming process. This plan is crucial for the region’s receipt of federal funds and for aligning with projected changes in federal, state, and local funding, as well as evolving transportation priorities.


The following links contain the elements of the Roanoke Valley Transportation Plan (RVTP). The RVTPO Policy Board approved the RVTP on January 26, 2023.
