Join us Wednesday for our weekly meeting at 12:30 PM to listen to Andrea Garland and Tori Williams provide an overview of transportation priorities in the Roanoke Valley. Tori is the Director of Transportation Planning for the City of Roanoke. Andrea is the Director of RIDE Solutions. Their presentation will include Interstate 81 and the Regional Electric Vehicle Charging Study.

Andrea, a native of Bogota, Colombia, relied on public transit, biking and walking as she grew up, inspiring her interest in the field of transportation.
