Topic:

 

A Resolution Authorizing a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Revenue Sharing Grant Application for the Route 605/Route 676 Intersection

 

Topic Description:

 

A request for the Board of Supervisors to direct County staff to submit a VDOT Revenue Sharing Program application and reserve $150,000 from the New Baltimore Transportation Fund as the County match. Funds would be used for VDOT construction of the requisite turn lane improvements at the Route 605/Route 676 intersection.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impact Analysis:

50% funding (County:  $150,000; VDOT Revenue Share:  $150,000).

 

Summary Staff Report:

 

The New Baltimore Transportation fund was established through the approved Brookside/Waterfield Rezoning for improvements that are associated in part with its development.  Even though development within New Baltimore has been modest and constrained with the expansion schedule and requisite state permitting requirements of the Vint Hill wastewater treatment facility, the Route 605/Route 676 intersection continues to be designated as a key access point for major construction traffic and the initial phases of Brookside/Waterfield. 

 

Note that the adopted New Baltimore Service District recommends the referenced Route 605/676 intersection improvement as one of the top five secondary road improvements in its 5‑Year Action Plan.  The top five priorities are:  (1) Vint Hill Parkway (from Brookside/Waterfield property line to Route 215); (2) Route 600 shoulder improvements; (3) Route 600/Route 676 roundabout; (4) Route 605/676 intersection; and (5) Brookside Parkway (from Rt. 605, through Brookside/Waterfield to its property line with Vint Hill).  The Brookside Community cash transportation proffers, placed into the New Baltimore Transportation Fund, are intended to be used for projects 2-5 referenced previously as traffic warrants. Brookside and Bishop Run proffered funds are expected to be instrumental in the design and construction of the Route 600/676 roundabout.

 

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

Department of Community Development

Utilities (e.g., NOVEC, Dominion Power, Gas; WSA)

Virginia Department of Transportation
