Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

R/W is currently being negotiated and utilities have started to be relocated.  VDOT and Luck Stone met on September 28th.  Luck Stone is currently receiving bids on the project and VDOT, Luck Stone, and potential contractors had a follow up meeting to discuss more specific construction items.

The right-of-way phase continues on this project.  Right of Way offers have been made to CATEC and Wetsel and are pending.  A Right of Way revision is underway as requested by the City of Charlottesville.  Once the revision is complete, an offer will be made to the city.

Project funding update:  Additional funding as a result of HB 3202 has enabled the city to fully fund this project.  The most significant remaining issue is formal city agreement to provide temporary easements for construction of the project. 

The project has been split into two phases.  The first phase from route 240 to about 0.5 miles east of route 684 has been scheduled for advertisement in November of 2010.

A preliminary schedule has been developed for the project estimating that the right of way phase will need approximately 15 months to complete. It is estimated that the plans will be ready for the right of way phase to begin in December of 2008 and an estimated advertisement date in early 2011 is expected.

The project is waiting for the survey to be completed.

A citizen information meeting was held on October 11, 2007, at Spring Hill Baptist Church on Fray’s

Mill Road.  There were approximately 100 attendees at the meeting and VDOT has received over 100

comment sheets from the public.  The comments are being evaluated to determine the community’s

preference for the potential alignments.


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