Progress Park

Progress Park is a premier collection of industrial sites at the intersection of Interstates 81 and 77 near Wytheville. Ready and graded sites ranging from a few acres up to a graded pad of 166 acres means that we can accommodate projects of all sizes.

Years of investment and planning mean ready sites are available to fast-track projects of various sizes. Engineering and geotechnical work helps minimize the unknowns that burden any project. In fact, Wythe County has worked with Virginia Business Ready Sites and Appalachian Power to do various site characterizations to help you compare sites across your area of interest.
