A Resolution Recommending Projects
for Inclusion in the Six-Year Improvement Program for the Viriginia
Department of Transportation
The Commonwealth Transportation Board's (CTB) Regional
Six-Year Improvement Program "pre-allocation" hearing for the
Culpeper District will be held on the evening of
October 6, 2003
. The meeting will be held at
the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Culpeper District Office
to collect public input to help the CTB update the Six-Year Improvement
Program. The hearing will be
divided into two parts. First,
there will be an informal "open forum" with information stations
and maps and transportation experts on hand to answer questions.
Attendees will be able to make comments during this period to a
court reporter as part of the official record.
The second part of the hearing will include a presentation followed
by public comments from the meeting participants.
The court reporter will record these comments as well.
The Board of Supervisors establishes the County's
Six-Year Improvement priorities, which are presented to the CTB at the
"pre-allocation" hearing for its consideration.
The attached resolution reflects the same priorites adopted in
April 2002, with a revision to the Route 28 improvements item.
This clarification reflects the updated Service District Plans for
the communities along Route 28. The
specific Route 28 intersections will be studied further by the
Transportation Committee and the VDOT Warrenton Residency, since there may
be alternative funding sources available to make some of these specific
safety improvements at a faster pace than afforded by the Six-Year
Requested Action of the
Board of Supervisors:
Consider adoption of the attached
September 9, 2003
, the Transportation Committee met and made a recommendation on the Six-Year Improvement priorities; which is reflected in the attached
resolution. After much
discussion, the Committee has requested that the VDOT Warrenton Residency
evaluate and recommend a funding source for the Route 28 Spot Safety and
Intersection Improvements identified in the Service District Plans along
Route 28 from Route 15/29 to the
line. Some of these
improvements may be more appropriately completed using alternative funding
sources, such as safety improvements funds.
VDOT will report back to the Transportation Committee with its
evaluation of these key intersections.
