Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

R/W is currently being negotiated.  VDOT, Albemarle County and Luck Stone met on July 20, 2007 to follow up discussions on the construction funding for this project.  Luck Stone has received plans for the project and is currently reviewing them.  VDOT will begin to draft a Memorandum of Agreement for the project and Luck Stone will determine if they will construct the project.  A meeting for these two items is scheduled for September

This project is fully funded.  The R/W phase continues with appraisals and negotiations ongoing.  Target date for right of way to be cleared remains November 2007.  Utility relocations will begin afterwards.  This project remains on schedule for a June 2008 advertisement.

Project funding update:  Additional funding as a result of HB 3202 has enabled the city to fully fund this project.  The city has accepted a new stormwater management design plan for the involved projects which will result in multiple facilities throughout both the county and city projects. 

District Design Staff continues work on plan updates based upon recent development impacts along this roadway. Once these updates and funding questions are resolved, a target advertisement date will be set. 

Basic Survey information has been plotted and work is underway to expand it to greater detail.  Design staff is reviewing information provided by the county to clarify certain areas where there are questions regarding easements and right-of-ways.  Additional survey resources from outside the district have been secured to expedite the completion of the survey work.  Mr. Greg Krystyniak, the VDOT project manager, has indicated a scoping meeting will be scheduled for August.

Aerial survey is scheduled to be available in August 2007.
