ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – The Virginia Dept. of Transportation is looking for feedback on the future construction of a pedestrian bridge that would bring the Appalachian Trail over Rt. 311 in Roanoke County.

In order to reach the McAffee Knob trailhead of the Appalachian Trail, hikers have to cross Rt. 311 in a location with a curve and limited visibility. As a solution, a bridge crossing Rt. 311 was proposed.
