That the City of Richmond, Virginia, requests the Commonwealth Transportation Board establish the State Route 147 - Main Street Pedestrian Curb Extension - Phase I project to fund the construction of pedestrian infrastructure improvements on State Route 147 from its intersection with North Belvidere Street to its intersection with South Arthur Ashe Boulevard using $387,221.00 in federal Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside funding.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED:

                     That, to the extent permitted by law, the City hereby:

                     2.                     Agrees to enter into a Standard Project Administration with the Virginia Department of Transportation and provide the necessary oversight to ensure that this project is developed in accordance with all federal and state requirements for the design, right-of-way acquisition, and construction of a federally funded transportation project.

                     3.                     Agrees that it will be responsible for the maintenance and operating costs of any improvement or facility constructed with Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside funds unless the City has made other arrangements with the Virginia Department of Transportation.
