Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

R/W is currently being negotiated.  After R/W is acquired and utilities are relocated, Luck Stone will construct the project under permit.  Meeting scheduled.

R/W phase update:  An offer has been made for the Replacement Park Land (Total take – Parcel 007) and negotiations are underway.  The appraisals are being prepared for the remaining parcels and offers/negotiations should begin in February 2007.  All R/W should be clear by November 2007 and utility relocations will begin.  Residency Staff is working with County staff to update funding.  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

Survey update being scheduled to reflect new development and to finalize project estimate.  It appears feasible to split this project into two, with the separation occurring at Jarmans Lake Road.  Updated advertisement and funding schedule to be produced in Six Year Plan update.

The project will only include pedestrian and safety improvements and will not be federal.  Aerial survey is being scheduled.

The curve has been staked in the field and a scoping meeting has occurred.  Environmental is currently assessing impacts.

Culvert and grading operations will begin in the fall of 2006.  The surface will be placed in the spring of 2007.

Greene County

It has been determined that the project is not eligible for federal funding.  Funding has been shifted to this project to be fully funded in F.Y. 2008.  Transportation funding shortfall will possibly extend ad date.
