New County transportation projects now fully funded by state

VDOT (Virginia Department of Transportation) is considering  appropriation of additional anticipated reimbursements for six individual projects previously approved by the Board.

The Board of Supervisors is requested to schedule a public hearing for May 22, 2013 to consider appropriation of additional anticipated VDOT reimbursements for six individual projects previously approved by the Board.

The projects range from pedestrian related improvements to highway widening. VDOT is expected to cover the cost of most projects closely. Before the new state transportation budget, Chesterfield would have had to match the state funds.

According to Chesterfield’s department of transportation, design of these projects is underway. Additional VDOT funding has been acquired for the projects. The Board is being requested to appropriate these additional anticipated VDOT reimbursements that have been secured. In some instances, this funding will allow the county to complete the full scope of work in lieu of reducing the scope to fit current funding.

In other instances, it will allow for an enhanced product, according to the transportation department.

The sum total of the requested appropriation increase is $18,469,838. State Code requires that a public hearing be held when an amendment equal to 1 percent or more of the total budget is needed.

Staff recommends the Board set a public hearing to consider appropriation of additional anticipated VDOT reimbursements to the projects as indicated below:

Route 60 (Courthouse Road to Old Buckingham Road) Widening – $4,100,000
Route 360 (Winterpock Road to Woodlake Village Parkway) Widening – $8,950,000
Route 10 (Route 1 to I-95) Widening – $4,000,000
Route 10, Village of Chester, Pedestrian Improvements – $200,000
Cogbill Road (Howell Lane to Meadowbrook High School) Sidewalk – $380,000
Osborne Road (Cliff Lawn Drive to shopping center) Sidewalk – $839,838

No additional local match is required.
