EXIT1

Currently, Exit 1 off I-77, is underdeveloped and the City of Bluefield is taking aggressive steps to entice development. The City purchased approximately 80 acres at Exit 1 and recently received a $1 million dollar grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to prepare 10-12 acres for a mixed-use development. The land includes Census Tracts 23 and 24 which are designated as Opportunity Zones.
