LEGAL REVIEW: No
January 4, 2006
ACTION: X INFORMATION:
The Board reviewed the proposed Priority List of Secondary Road Improvements on December 7, 2005 and received public comment at a public hearing on December 14, 2005.
3.1 Make the County a Safe and Healthy Community in which citizens feel secure to live, work and play.
3.3 Develop and implement policies that address the County’s growth and urbanization while continuing to enhance the factors that contribute to the quality of life in the County.
As part of its review of the proposed Priority List, the Board requested additional information on the following:
· Recommended funding allocation for unpaved road funds including funds allocated to Rural Rustic Projects (RRR) and Regular Paving Projects. VDOT has provided a draft of the Secondary System Road Improvement Program (Attachment B). Pages 2 and 3 the attachment are a preliminary draft of the funding breakdown for unpaved road projects (page 2, RRR projects; page 3, Regular Paving projects). The “Balance to Complete” and “Comments” columns in each table are confusing and need to be finalized by VDOT. A final draft of pages 2 and 3 will be provided by VDOT by the January 4th Board meeting. The last four rows of the spreadsheet on page 3 provide a breakdown of total funding for unpaved roads and the proposed distribution between regular paving projects and RRR projects. For FY 06-07, a total of $737,381 is projected to be available for unpaved roads. $300,000 is proposed for RRR projects and $476, 305 proposed for Regular paving projects. The projects scheduled for advertisement in FY06-07 are Rt. 633, Heard’s Mountain Road (RRR) and Route 643, Rio Mills Road (Regular Paving project).
The Board also directed staff to request VDOT develop cost estimates for two projects during the upcoming year for consideration during next year’s review of the Six Year Secondary Plan and County Priority List Secondary Road improvements. These projects are 1) shoulder paving/trail development (for bike use/safety/maintenance purposes) for Barracks/Garth Road; and, 2) the Route 795 (Hardware Street) and Route 20 intersection in Scottsville. Staff will work with VDOT to further evaluate these projects and provide information to Board during next year’s Six Year Plan review.
Staff recommends approval of the attached County Priority List of Secondary Road Improvements and VDOT Six Year Secondary Road System Improvement Program based on the County’s priorities.
