BACKGROUND:  This work session is intended to present information on the Albemarle County Secondary Six-Year Plan (SSYP) and road paving priorities in advance of the development and approval of the FY 2020-2025 SSYP in June 2019. The information and Board direction produced from this work session will be used to develop this FY 2020-2025 SSYP.

The SSYP allocates funding for construction, maintenance, and improvement of roads in the state secondary system. The funds allocated to Albemarle County through the SSYP include state and federal funds for a variety of road improvement programs. The SSYP for Albemarle County is updated and approved annually and identifies the specific funding source, use, and levels allocated for the immediate fiscal year. The SSYP also identifies projected funding allocations for the next five fiscal years.

The Albemarle County Priority List for Secondary Road Improvements, Unpaved Roads is a listing of all Secondary Roads that have been requested to be paved by the public, a County department, or the Board of Supervisors. This list is reviewed and approved by the Board annually, and forms the basis of the SSYP for Albemarle County.
 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN: Infrastructure Investment: Prioritize, plan, and invest in critical infrastructure that responds to past and future changes and improves the capacity to serve community needs.

 

DISCUSSION:  The Secondary-Six Year Plan, Priorities and Recommendations Report (Attachment A) provides the background on the SSYP, the Virginia Department of Transportation paving programs, and Albemarle County’s paving requests and priorities. The SSYP report and work session are held annually prior to development of the Draft SSYP in order to inform the development of the Plan. The SSYP establishes the program for expending state funds allocated to Albemarle County for road improvements to the Secondary Road System (roads with a route number of 600 or higher). The majority of the available funding must be used for paving unpaved roads. The report also provides information on the projected funding allocations, the status of the projects currently in the SSYP, and County and VDOT staff recommendations for any changes or additions to the SSYP. Also included in the report is information regarding the process for reviewing and prioritizing unpaved road projects.

This work session is focused on 1) the review of the prioritization strategies for unpaved roads, and 2) input on project recommendations for the SSYP for FY 2020 - FY 2025. Based on the direction received from the Board, staff will make any adjustments to the prioritization strategies and priority list of projects and will work with VDOT staff to finalize the SSYP for public hearing and adoption in June.

 

BUDGET IMPACT: The SSYP outlines the expenditure of State/VDOT secondary road construction funds allocated to the County. The SSYP program does not require the expenditure of County funds unless the Board directs additional funding from the County general fund be appropriated to a project, such as through the use of the revenue sharing program.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Recommendation

Staff recommends that the Board: 1) Provide input on the unpaved road review and prioritization process; 2) Approve the recommended prioritized list of paving projects set forth in the staff report for inclusion in the County’s draft FY2020-2025 SSYP; and 3) schedule a public hearing on the SSYP for June 5, 2019.
