Roanoke Continuing Its Push to Get Interstate 73

Posted: Updated:

The Star City is continuing its push to have Interstate 73 extend to Roanoke in the next few years.

It's one of the top priorities in the city's 2014 legislative program. If built, I-73 would connect South Carolina to Roanoke going through Franklin and Henry counties.

The city says that these projects would help improve transportation all throughout the southwest portion of the state and provide an economic boost.
