Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

On schedule for spring 2008 Construction with ROW acquisition to begin in October 2005.

On schedule for a June 2008 Ad Date with ROW acquisition scheduled to begin in December 2005.

The Public Hearing is rescheduled for spring 2006.

This project scoping meeting was held on September 29, 2005.  The project will require the replacement of two bridges and a significant amount of rock removal to complete.  The estimate for the entire project is to be revised and the project split into segments for construction.  The ROW on the east side is under negotiation with the UVA Foundation and hinges on some previous proffers regarding buffers they need to maintain for their development.

This project has been moved forward on the plan.  The Scoping for the project was held on September 29, 2005.  The ROW is available and the project will be scheduled for construction in the spring, 2007, pending utility relocations.

Phase 2 from Doctors Crossing, Route 784, to Ashley Road, Route 1094, is scheduled to start first week in October and should be completed by the end of October.

Greene County

Project is on schedule for December 2006 Ad Date.
