                                                                                                                        Active Construction Projects

Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

R/W is currently being negotiated and utilities have started to be relocated.  Luck Stone continues preparations for the construction phase which is tentatively planned for April, 2008.

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.

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. The next step is submission of plans to the Central Office for location/design approval. This is expected to occur in early December.                                  

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 scoping meeting was held November 28th to discuss results the comments received from the citizens’ information meeting and the next steps in the design process.
