Topic:

 

A Resolution Authorizing a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Revenue Sharing Grant Consolidation to the Route 605/Route 676 and Route 605/602 Intersectional Improvements

 

Topic Description:

 

In July of 2005, the Board of Supervisors transmitted a revenue sharing grant application to VDOT for five intersection improvements:  (1) Route 605/676; (2) Route 605 frontage; (3) Route 602/Watson Road; (4) Route 600/676; and (5) Extension of Brookside Parkway to Kennedy Road (Rt. 652).  The application was submitted with multiple improvements that could have served a potential high school at the Fahy, Lunceford, Mt. Sterling Farm or Vint Hill locations which were being considered in the July 2005 timeframe.  Once the school site was pinpointed, the objective was to consolidate the list into two projects.

 

With the recent acquisition of the Lunceford Estate property, County and VDOT staffs are recommending the projects focus on the Route 605/676 and Route 605/602 intersection/ signalization designs and construction.  As a result and in VDOT terminology, four of the five proposed projects must be discontinued and the money re-allocated to the Route 605/602 intersection.  That is the sole purpose of the proposed and attached resolution for Board of Supervisors action: to retain the Route 605/676 intersection/signalization project and add the redefined Route 605/602 intersection/signalization project.

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

1.      VDOT Revenue Sharing Program.  VDOT manages the County Primary and Secondary Road Fund, which is more commonly called the “Revenue Sharing Program.” It allows VDOT to provide state funds to match local funds for the construction, maintenance, or improvement of these key public roads within the participating jurisdictions. 

2.      Grant.  The design (e.g., engineering, environmental, historic), construction management and construction costs are currently estimated at $1,661,970. The construction plan phase is scheduled to commence in early January. VDOT funds reserved for the projects total $744,920; while the County will need to reserve $197,050 from contingency funds in FY 2006 and 2007 and use $917,050 for the project from the New Baltimore Transportation Proffered Funds for projects such as these:  (a) Brookside: $300,000; (b) Vint Hill: $420,000.
