A Resolution Requesting that the Board of Supervisors Consider Withdrawing Authorization to Institute the Road Abandonment Process for a Portion of Cedar Run Drive


Topic Description:


The Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution directing the County Administrator to take all action necessary to obtain a permanent cul-de-sac easement and to institute the road abandonment process for a portion of Cedar Run Drive, which is not currently in the State Secondary System of Highways.  The Transportation Committee has recommended that the Board consider directing the County Administrator to no longer pursue the abandonment of this section of right-of-way, and not seek to establish a permanent cul-de-sac in this location.


Attachment 1 is a GIS map illustrating the existing right-of-way along Cedar Run Drive, and Attachment 2 is a wider view of Cedar Run Drive, as it relates to other roads in the area.  While the right-of-way is in place to connect Cedar Run Drive to Frytown Road as shown on the graphic, the road terminates before it connects.  As illustrated, when Frytown Road is improved over time the roads in this area will serve as connections from Route 29 and Route 605 to Meetze Road.  Today, Millwood Drive connects Cedar Run Drive to Atlee Road.


The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) recommended to the Transportation Committee that the right-of-way remain available to provide options for future development of road connections.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:


Consider adoption of the attached resolution.


Transportation Committee Recommendation:

On January 28, 2004, the Transportation Committee recommended that the Board of Supervisors consider retaining the Cedar Run Drive right-of-way, and not institute the abandonment process.
