All active construction projects for the 2007 season have been substantially completed.

                                                                                                                        Active Construction Projects

Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

Right of way is near completion and utilities have been relocated.  VDOT, Albemarle County and Luck Stone are continuing to work towards construction starting in the spring of 2008.

The right-of-way phase continues on this project.  Out of 21 total parcels, 10 negotiations are complete, 1 right of entry has been acquired and 10 parcels are still pending.  It is expected that a right of entry for the CATEC property will be acquired by January 7th.  The right-of-way revision for the City has been completed and an offer is ready to be made pending the City Attorney and Attorney General’s Office discussions. 

Progress continues related to revised storm water design including contouring and plantings.

VDHR concurred on 10-11-2007 that the project will have an effect on the eligible Crozet Historic District and seven contributing resources; however, the effect on the district will not be adverse. Public Hearing approval is pending.

All survey is completed and design work related to cross sections and drainage continues.  A progress meeting will be tentatively planned for January.

Survey work is completed and preliminary design has begun.

A meeting was held with the Consulting Parties to discuss potential impacts to the historic district and mitigation alternatives.  The next step will be for VDOT Environmental staff to begin work on the necessary federal environmental documents.
