We'll begin tonight with the
Keagy Village Project in Roanoke
County.

It will be built at the corner of
Route 419 and Keagy Road next to
Allstate Insurance.

You may remember, neighbors
bitterly fought this project arguing a

retail shopping center is inappropiate
for a residential neighborhood.

But here it is three years later
and it's still not open.

*CG locator Roanoke Co.

As you can see, crews have been
busy the last few months clearing the
land for what's being described as a

highscale shopping center.

Kahn Development says it will
consist of speciality shops and an
office complex.

So far, Starbucks and a
restaurant called Bone Fish Grille have
agreed to locate to Keagy Village.

However, the developer still
hasn't found a small higher end grocery
store.

Kahn Development partly blames
the addition of Fresh Market and
Ukrop's to the area for the holdup.

Even so, the project is still a
go and the developer hopes to have some
of the retail shops open by the end of
the year.

NATASHA QUESTION

Justin, since this will obviously
be built near a busy 419, will there be
any upgrades to the road?

JUSTIN ANSWER

Yes Natasha, turning lanes will
be added to 419 and there will also be
upgrades made to Keagy Road.

Natasha, some of that roadwork
should begin in the next six months.

Several communities in and out of

Community and business leaders
want the museum to relocate to the

That property will be available
once the new courthouse is built at
Randolph and Nelson Streets in about

Those in favor of the move say
more tourists would visit the area and
bring in nearly a million dollars in
