The plan shall be developed using GIS data and include available information that will help develop an accurate cost estimate including the proposed bridge footprint, project limits (touchdown points), existing right of way, existing utilities and contours. 8. Select the Tools menu

open the Geographic toolbox Click the Geographic Coordinate System and search Virginia. Suggested Method for Creating the GIS Basemap from VITA : (Note: Some Cities/Counties have their own GIS Mapping) Download Imagery 1. Go to VITA Virginia Base Map Program Site: https://vgin.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Viewer/index.html?appid=cbe6a0c1b2c440168e228ee33b89cb38 2. Zoom to the project location, right click on the image file name, and download the MrSID zip file. Download GIS Data 3. Download supporting GIS/shape files for project location (roadway edges, sidewalks, building, parcels, utilities, railroads, contours, etc.) from county GIS website (shapefiles or dwg). 4. Example: https://www.albemarle.org/department.asp?department=gds&relpage=3914#Planimetrics Create Basemap File and Setup the Environment 5. Create new 2D dgn file (US Survey feet) using VDOT seed file (USFootSeed.dgn). 6. Save as Basemap.dgn 7. Select the Workspace menu/Preferences/ Raster Manager - Select the Georeference tab - Change the Default Unit Settings to US Survey Feet.

9. Select the appropriate coordinate system name for your project location (VA83-NF or VA83-SF). Build Basemap 10. Select the Raster Manager menu and attach the downloaded imagery (*.sid) file from steps 1 and 2. 11. Select the Tools menu and reference in the downloaded planimetric files (*.shp or *.dwg) from step 3. (Note: when attaching these files, set the Attachment Method to Geographic Reprojected. Note: If elevation information is needed, lidar data can be download and converted to an existing surface TIN file (*.tin).

SGR Projects with SMART SCALE Funding/Scope SGR Projects with Other Funds With Specific Scope Reqs * * Where other funding source has specific scope requirements Examples: HSIP, Container Funds, etc. SGR Projects with Other Funds Covering Non-SGR Scope ** ** Where other funding does not have specific scope requirements Examples: DBF, CTB, M&O, Locality, etc. Early review helps to 1) Have all scope items are funded by the correct fund source 2) Reduce chance on rejection of WNF for SGR 3) Reduce chance of rejection of application for other fund source 13 Lessons Learned - Project Scope Issues Needing Early Review Exceeding SGR Limits (Ex. Touchdown) in IIM-S&B-95

Items requiring approval from District Structure & Bridge Engineer Items requiring approval from Assistant State Structure & Bridge Engineer Bicycle/Pedestrian/Shared-Use-Path Elements Railroad or Transit Element Uncommon / Complex Environmental Permits Navigational Waterways (clearances/permits) Accommodating Future Expansion Other Situations High Risk Unusual / Uncommon Elements

Early review helps to include sufficient funding (budget) to cover estimate for all scope items 14 Lessons Learned Additional Project Scope to Watch For Maintenance of Traffic Closed Road with Detour becomes Part-Width Construction Additional Costs: MOT bid items add cost, access, double mobilization Part-Width Construction becomes an Offset Alignment Additional Temporary ROW and Utility Impacts

State of Good Repair Program 30 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update Primary Extension Policy Adopted June 2014 Allows CTB to set aside a portion of the reconstruction and paving allocations for deteriorated primary extension pavements maintained by municipalities Maximum request of $1M per locality per year Combined Condition Index (CCI) rating of less than 60 Projects must be advertised within 6 months of allocation of funds Maintenance of Effort Certification funding supplements, not replaces, the current level of funding/level of effort on the part of the locality 31 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update Funding Source Background CTB Formula funds applied to projects were state funds beginning in FY 2015

CTB Formula funding sunsets in FY2020 State of Good Repair program funding was partially implemented in Fiscal Year 2017 using state funds State of Good Repair funding anticipated to be fully implemented in FY 2021 Beginning FY 2021 primary extension projects must follow the federal process Funding was anticipated to be federal in FY 2019 Exception was granted through FY 2020 to allow localities time to prepare for additional federal contract requirements 32 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update Primary extension projects will utilize federal funding beginning FY 2021 Changes are proposed to address the following: Additional cost for projects to meet the federal requirements Contract Development: Safety reviews (guardrails, ADA compliance, pavement markings, shoulder drop-offs, signs, etc.) Environmental studies (Environmental review process, Environmental permits, and Draft

environmental document) NEPA document (designated as Activity 25) as a Programmatic Categorical Exclusion (PCE) Contract Administration: Contract enforcement Buy America, DBE goals, Davis-Bacon wage rates, etc Additional time to meet federal requirements and to obtain federal authorization 33 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update Environmental Update VDOT has a streamlined environmental process for paving projects VDOT environmental will complete the necessary NEPA and threatened and endangered species environmental clearances for all federal SGR local paving projects utilizing the streamlined process

34 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update Environmental Update Streamlined Process A One-Time Programmatic Categorical Exclusion (OTPCE) has been created for paving projects OTPCE PCE created for specific activities In this case paving projects Programmatic agreements have been executed with resource agencies for threatened and endangered species coordination Depending on project location and clearances received the locality may be required to include special provisions in contract documents

VDOT will provided special provision template language when required 35 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update Environmental Update NEPA Document is now required due to federal funds being applied to the projects All activities in the contract become federalized and all activities must be included in the NEPA document Example 1: One side of the road receives federal SGR funds, the other side of the road is in the same contract and paid for with locality funds. Since both sides of the road are in the same contract both sides of the road are federalized and are included in the NEPA

document. 36 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update Environmental Update Example 2: A roadway receives federal SGR funds to pave a portion of the roadway. The locality wants to build a turn lane in the same area as the paving project and the locality decides it would be best to include both activities in the same contract. Both activities would be considered federalized and the project would no longer qualify for the streamlined clearance process. (OTPCE could not be used and threatened and endangered species programmatic agreement not longer applicable) 37 State of Good Repair Program Primary Extension Paving Update VDOT initiatives to assist localities with federalizing paving contracts

Construction Division will be providing a federal paving contract template with all required federal provisions for locality use VDOT could advertise/administer District wide contracts for locality SGR paving segments Localities could Federalize an existing contract and include the Primary Extension Routes in that contract Localities may use existing contracts if they were procured with federal aid contract provisions 38 Safety Analysis Requirements for Paving Projects (FHWA-VDOT Stewardship and Oversight Agreement) Project Category*
