LEGAL REVIEW:   Not Required


REVIEWED BY: Jeffrey B. Richardson


BACKGROUND:  The Commonwealth Drive / Dominion Drive Sidewalk Project is a locally administered project, funded through the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Revenue Sharing Program.  The extent of the proposed work on Commonwealth Drive addressed in the Revenue Sharing Agreement include sections of Commonwealth Drive from Hydraulic Road to Dominion Drive, and Dominion Drive from Commonwealth Drive from to Route 29.  The approved scope was limited to the provision of sidewalks to enhance pedestrian safety. 


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:  During the design process, staff and project engineers with Kimley-Horn Associates considered alternatives to expand the scope to include features to enhance both bicycle safety and safe access to public transportation stops.  A thorough evaluation of existing conditions and scope alternatives indicate the potential for a number of valuable enhancements, but also impacts to properties which may be considered negatively be neighborhood residents.  Staff will provide a recommended scope of work which achieves the project’s primary objectives while limiting negative impacts. 


BUDGET IMPACT: The proposed scope of work does not require funds beyond those previously identified for this project.




Staff recommends that the Board direct Staff to proceed with the proposed scope of work.
