SUBJECT/PROPOSAL/REQUEST:   Approval of VDOT Project Administration Agreement for Berkmar Drive Extension to Airport Road Revenue Sharing Project


ITEM TYPE:  Consent Action Item

PRESENTER (S):  Daniel Butch, Kevin McDermott




REVIEWED BY: Jeffrey B. Richardson


BACKGROUND:  In October 2019, the County applied for Revenue Sharing funding for a new roadway connection of Berkmar Drive extending to Lewis and Clark Drive, which would include pedestrian facilities, bike lanes, and a roundabout at the Airport Road/Lewis and Clark Drive/Berkmar Drive intersection. The application was approved and recommended for funding in December 2020. 


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:  This project would be administered by VDOT, which requires project agreements for all projects that it administers. The project Agreement (Attachment A) outlines the County’s commitment of the local share of the project and VDOT’s administration of the project. If and when the Agreement were fully executed, VDOT would continue the preliminary engineering stage, which is at 30% design. The proposed Resolution (Attachment B) would provide the County Executive with signature authority.


BUDGET IMPACT: In the Revenue Sharing application, the County already committed Transportation Leveraging funds totaling $4,403,987 and TeleFee funds available through the Secondary Six Year Program. Because the State funded this project at a lesser amount than was requested, the County contribution has increased by $888,728, for a total of $5,292,715. The total amount would be due to the State over Fiscal Years 2023 to 2025 (FY 23 to FY 25). This amount also would require all future Telefee funding through FY 23 to make up the additional $2,288,226 necessary to complete Preliminary Engineering and Right-of-Way phases. The awarded Revenue Sharing funding is available in FY 25 for construction phase and completion of project. 




Staff recommends that the Board of Supervisors adopt the attached Resolution (Attachment B) approving the attached Agreement (Attachment A).
