Request approval and funding for project expansion for pedestrian improvements on Old Courthouse Road NE
Body
EXPLANATION AND SUMMARY:

The Fairfax County Transportation Priorities Plan includes pedestrian improvements on the west side of Old Courthouse Road NE within the Town of Vienna and eastward to connect to existing sidewalk near Gosnell Road. Curb and gutter with drainage improvements are included to eliminate the roadway ditch.

Utility coordination, construction services (engineering and services), and right-of-way services also are required.

Staff recommends approval of the attached $186,938 scope and fee from RDA for the additional effort required to complete this project. Funding for this additional effort will be provided by Fairfax County.
