Description

This project provides funds for the study and prioritization of improvements to Dedicated but Unmaintained (DBU) County Roads in order to accept them into the County's road maintenance system. Once the need and priority of the roadway improvements are established, funding will be provided for their design and construction. As stipulated in the DBU County Roads Policy, the County will fund planning, design and supervision costs up to 10 percent of the total cost of each project. The remaining costs for these projects will be recovered from the communities through a special tax assessment. The DBU County Roads Policy was developed by the DBU County Roads Working Group. The policy provides guidance for County officials in responding to requests from residents for improvements to, or maintenance of, DBU County Roads in a consistent manner and establishes criteria for evaluating the need for improvements to the DBU County Roads.

Justification

A total of 59 roads have currently been identified and inventoried as DBU County Roads. In the past, residents have requested that the County assume maintenance of various non-standard roads even though County policy prohibits acceptance of maintenance responsibilities for roadways that do not meet appropriate County standards. The purpose of this project is to respond to these requests in accordance with the recently adopted DBU County Roads Policy. Under the terms of the policy, citizen requests will result in comparative studies of the DBU County Roads being performed to determine the priority and ranking of the requested projects.

Other

DOT completed a re-evaluation report in FY22 and recommended maintaining this program.

Fiscal Note

Annual level of effort funding is provided to develop initial responses to community requests. Funding to complete studies beyond the current appropriation limit or for design and construction will be added as road improvement projects are identified and recommended through this program.
