Topic:

A Resolution to Adopt the 2009-2010 through 2014-2015 Secondary Road Six-Year Plan (SSYP) and the 2009-2010 Fiscal Year Budget

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 a representative of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to receive public comment on the proposed Secondary System Construction Program for Fiscal Years 2009-2010 through Fiscal Years 2014-2015.  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.

This past year three projects, Eskridges Lane, Elk Run Road, and Lucky Hill Road were completed.   Two projects on Dumfries Road (#11216 and #11217) and another on Silver Hill Road are currently under construction.  A third project on Dumfries Road (#76193) and the project on Old Culpeper Road are recommended to be removed from the priority list due to budget constraints.  The two projects to be removed will be “in storage” and can be resurrected at a later date as more funding becomes available.

 

Transportation Committee Recommendation:

On March 25, 2009, the Transportation Committee unanimously recommended approval of the Secondary Road Six-Year Plan, as included in the attached resolution. 

In addition to the VDOT recommended projects, the Transportation Committee recommended the addition of improvements to Schoolhouse Road (Route 661), although this project was not given a ranked priority.  VDOT has not had the opportunity to evaluate the Schoolhouse Road proposal to determine if it is eligible for inclusion on the Six-Year Plan, nor has VDOT generated a cost estimate for the project.  A discussion of all projects “in storage” with VDOT took place at the Transportation Committee meeting in March.  VDOT will be working with the Transportation Committee over the next few months to list and consider the projects “in storage” to come up with a County list of priorities that could be resurrected at a later date as more funding becomes available.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Conduct a joint public hearing with the Virginia Department of Transportation and postpone action until the May 14, 2009 Board meeting.
