Background Discussion

During the annual Metropolitan Planning Organization project priority-setting process, the Board adopted an April 2013 Congestion Management System project priority for additional turn lanes at the intersection of Ellenton-Gillette Road and 69th Street East. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) initially funded the project in the State's FY14/15-FY18/19 Work Program for design in FY14/15 and construction in FY16/17.  State FY16/17 began on July 1, 2016; therefore, project construction funding is imminent.

The FDOT is administering this project for an intersection of two County roads.  For the FDOT administered projects on local government roads, a maintenance agreement is required establishing that the local government will maintain the improvements when construction is complete.  The agreement is required prior to construction, and this item is a request to adopt the resolution authorizing the Chair to execute the agreement. In addition, the inclusion of an additional turn lane funded by the County necessitates a locally funded agreement. Staff and the County Attorney's Office have reviewed the agreements. Staff has found the agreements to be acceptable and generally consistent with other FDOT agreements used for this purpose.  Staff recommends Board adoption of the resolution and execution of the agreements.
