Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

R/W is currently being negotiated.  VDOT, Albemarle County and Luck Stone are scheduled to meet on July 20, 2007 to follow up discussions on the construction funding for this project.

This project is fully funded.  The R/W phase continues with appraisals and negotiations ongoing.  Target date for right of way to be cleared remains November 2007.  Utility relocations will begin afterwards.  This project remains on schedule for a June 2008 advertisement.

Project funding update:  Estimated funding shortfall at this time is $5.1 million.  Potential cost reductions and additional funding have been identified for $3.9 million leaving total shortfall at $1.2 million

County and residency staffs will soon be meeting to discuss funding options based upon projected state funding and revenue sharing allocations. District Design Staff continues work on plan updates based upon recent development impacts along this roadway. Once these updates and funding questions are resolved, a target advertisement date will be set. 

Basic Survey information has been plotted and work is underway to expand it to greater detail.  Design staff is reviewing information provided by the county to clarify certain areas where there are questions regarding easements and right-of-ways.  A meeting to update the scope of the project is expected in late July or early August.

Aerial survey is completed and follow up work is underway by ground survey crews to complete the survey.



The monthly update to the rural rustic program is attached to this report.
