It will be located in the Valley Gateway Industrial Park off route 460 in eastern Roanoke County.
Meanwhile Henry County supervisors have given the nod to the purchase of 750 acres of land next to the county- owned Beaver Creek Industrial Park.

Similar books written about other cities have made it easier for them to promote themselves to prospective businesses.

That some effort would be made by project opponents to disrupt the dignity of the event by interrupting Governor Allen was far less surprising that [your] willingness to play into the hands of the media-savvy antagonists."
The Smart Road is expected to create an estimated 318 jobs for eight years in construction, $100 million in research for Virginia Tech and $300 million in associated economic development over the next 20 years.
