A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator and County Attorney to Take All Actions Necessary to Have a Portion of McRae’s Road Taken Back Into the State Secondary System of Highways


Topic Description:

McRae’s Road, Virginia State Route 695, was previously in the Virginia State Secondary System of Highways.  A portion of McRae’s Road was discontinued for maintenance by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) on March 11, 1965.  After the discontinuance of maintenance the Fauquier County Planning Commission approved Pleasant Estates subdivision which uses McRae’s road, including the unmaintained portion, as its entrance way to the subdivision.  The owners of land in Pleasant Estates have asked that that the unmaintained portion of McRae’s Road from the present terminus of state maintenance to the present turnaround, a distance of approximately 0.4 miles, be taken back into the State Secondary System of Highways. The Virginia Department of Transportation has determined that it will cost $22,000 to bring the road back into conformance with the Virginia Department of Highways regulations of State Secondary Road.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

$22,000 to upgrade the road to meet State Secondary System regulations.
