Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

Utility relocation work remains ongoing.  The project has been submitted to the VDOT Central Office for administrative preparations to allow a fall advertisement.

·        Meadow Creek Parkway, U000-104-102 (City portion)

It has been determined after consultation with the Army Corp of Engineers that a Section 106 review must be done in association with the culvert that serves the tributary to Shanks Branch to obtain permit approval from the Corp. A minor delay may occur in the advertisement; however, the construction schedule is not expected to be impacted.

·        Route 691 Jarmans Gap Road, 0691-002-158, C501  

A meeting was held Friday September 19, 2008 with county staff to discuss the concept of allowing the county to construct the first portion of the project in conjunction with the streetscape project.  It has been determined that due to scheduling conflicts, this will not occur.  VDOT continues work to update plans to reflect field changes in utilities that have occurred due to development since project design began.
