A community meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 25, to gather public input on safety improvements needed along Riverside Drive from North Main Street to Piedmont Drive. The meeting will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Bonner Middle School.

The meeting format will be an open house, but will begin with a presentation on the Riverside Drive Corridor Improvement Study. The study will consider the need for sidewalks and crosswalks, intersection and access changes, use of bus bays, and ramp adjustments.

At the meeting, citizens will learn about the project, identify existing problems, and share improvement ideas.

The study is sponsored by the Virginia Department of Transportation in partnership with the City of Danville and the West Piedmont Planning District Commission.
