Preliminary Engineering

Albemarle County

R/W is currently being negotiated and utilities have started to be relocated.  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 has drafted a Memorandum of Agreement for the project and will present the document to Luck Stone for review at the meeting scheduled for September 28.

The right-of-way phase continues on this project.  A right of way offer is pending for the CATEC property.  There are still outstanding issues on the Wetsel and City of Charlottesville properties.

Project funding update:  Additional funding as a result of HB 3202 has enabled the city to fully fund this project.  The most significant remaining issue is formal city agreement to provide temporary easements for construction of the project. 

The survey has been updated to reflect recent development along the project.  The Tea Room property has been cleared and design is proceeding.  Although the final schedule has not yet been developed, an advertisement date in the later part of 2010 is expected.

Scoping has been completed.  Preliminary engineering has started and coordination with utilities is important in the development of the project.  A preliminary field inspection meeting is expected to be held in the late fall of 2007.

Aerial survey is scheduled to be available in October 2007.

A citizen information meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, October 11, 2007, at Spring Hill Baptist

Church on Fray’s Mill Road.  The time will be from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  The informational brochure

has been published and is in circulation throughout the community.
