From: Brian Dunevant

COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:     10/17/2017
SUMMARY
The City of Danville is proposing to apply for Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Transportation Alternative funding to continue development of the City's multi-use trail system.  Applications are being proposed for the following projects:
 
  • FY2019 Extend trail from Robertson Bridge to Riverside Drive.
  • FY2020 Extend trail from future River District Riverfront Park to Union Street Bridge Road via the canal in front of the White Mill. 
BACKGROUND

The City has had success in obtaining Transportation Alternative funding under the previous federal transportation legislation VDOT ISTEA/SAFETEA-LU and MAP 21 for various projects including the Crossing at the Dan complex, pedestrian bridge, and the Riverwalk Trail.  The latest legislation is known as the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.  Transportation Alternative funding authorized under this legislation will allow for the continued development of the City's multi-use trail system. The program requires that the City provide a minimum of 20 percent of the total cost for planning and design, right of way, and construction of this project as a match to the VDOT Transportation Alternative Set-Aside funds. 

RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council adopt the attached Resolutions authorizing funding applications to VDOT's Transportation Alternative Set-Aside Program to request FY2019 and FY2020 funding.
