Topic Description:

Pursuant to Section 33.1-70.01 of the Code of Virginia, 1950, as amended, a joint public hearing will be held with the Board of Supervisors and Resident Engineer for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to receive public comment on the proposed Secondary System Construction Program for Fiscal Years 2007-2008 through Fiscal Years 2012-2013.  Copies of the proposed program and budget may be reviewed at the Warrenton Residency Office of the Virginia Department of Transportation, located at 457 East Shirley Avenue, Warrenton, Virginia.  A summary of the projects is located at Attachment 1.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Conduct a joint public hearing with the Virginia Department of Transportation and postpone action until the February 8, 2007 Board meeting. 

Transportation Committee Recommendation:

On October 18, 2005, the Transportation Committee unanimously recommended approval of the Secondary Road Six-Year Plan and Budget, as presented in the draft resolution.  Items number 7 (Green Road) and 16 (Dumfries Road) on the Proposed Priority List have been removed based on the Transportation Committee’s recommendation.  Green Road repairs can be accomplished with maintenance funds, and the specified Dumfries Road improvements need additional study to determine if the project is still warranted.

 

In addition, Silver Hill Road (Route 615), Kines Road (Route 692), Fenny Hill Road (Route 816), and Old Culpeper Road (Route 800) were included in the Plan based on citizen requests, and are identified as the last four items on the Priority List.  The proposed resolution includes all four roads.

Financial Impact Analysis:

VDOT has submitted estimated program allocations and a budget for the Secondary System.

Identify any other Departments, Organizations or Individuals that would be affected by this request:
