am
forwarding the attached Special Capital Improvements Project
Legislation and Legislative Request Report for the following projects:
Chapman Avenue Extended (No. 500719)

Order. The purpose of each project is set forth below.
The Chapman A venue Extended project provides for the extension of Chapman Avenue

Roadway corridor, and is needed to meet traffic and safety demands of existing and future land uses in the
White Flint area.
The Travilah Road project provides for the design, land acquisition, and construction of a
14,400 section of Travilah Road between Darnestown Road and DufiefMill Road; to improve vehicular
safety, roadside drainage efficiency, and provide bikeway and pedestrian connectivity.

DESCRIPTION
This project provides funds for the design, land acquisition, and construction of the 14,400-foot section of Travilah Road between Damestown Road and Dufief
Mill Road. The improvements will be constructed in
two
phases: Phase
I:
construction of a closed-section roadway from Darnestown Road to Nolan Drive, with
a pavement width that will transition to 24 feet at a point 400 west of Nolan Drive; widening the pavement to 24 feet between Nolan Drive and Lake Winds Way;
a left-turn lane on Travllah Road at the Piney MeetinghOUse Road intersection; widening the pavement to 22 feet from Lake Winds Way to Dufief Mill Road; an
8-foot wide paved bikeway along the northern side of the roadway from Darnestown Road to Dufief Mill Road; a 4-foot wide grass shoulder and a drainage ditch
along the northern side of the roadway from a point 400 feet west of Nolan Drive to Dufief Mill Road; vertical alignment revisions at the Mount Prospect Drive
intersection and a location 400 feet west of Weiland Terrace; streetlights along the southern side of the roadway and lighting along the bikeway; landscaping
along the northern side of the roadway; and a right-turn lane into Piney Meetinghouse Road. Phase
11:
construction of missing bikeway sections from
Darnestown Road to Piney Meetinghouse Road, which includes; 700 feet along Travilah Road NE from Piney Meetinghouse Road; 500 feet along Travilah
Road from the Darnestown Road intersection; and 900 feet along Darnestown Road from Travilah Road to Great Seneca Highway.
CAPACITY
The 1997 and design year 2010 average daily traffic volumes are 7,400 and 11,000 vehicles, respectively.
ESTIMATED SCHEDULE
Phase
I
is complete and Phase
11
design will begin in 2011and construction is expected to start in 2012 and be completed by the fall of 2013.
COST CHANGE
Cost increase in order to complete the miSSing bikeway sections from Darnestown Road to Piney Meeting House Road.
JUSTIFICATION
Travilah Road between Nolan Drive and Dufief Mill Road is an open-section roadway which lacks shoulders and adequate roadside drainage; pavement width
varies from 20 to 22 feet, leaving inconsistent roadway cross-sections and isolated segments of sidewalk, Thirty-seven reported traffic accidents occurred on
this section of the road over a 3-year period, and localized roadway flooding occurs during rainstorms. The project will improve vehicular safety, roadside
drainage efficiency, and provide bikeway and pedestrian connectivity.
OTHER
Preliminary design costs were funded from the Facility Planning: Transportation project. Phase
II
will be constructed in stages as development occurs along
the south side of the roadway. The County will participate with developers in the construction of Phase II improvements during the development of adjacent
subdivisions.
Special Capital Projects Legislation will be proposed by the County Executive.
FISCAL NOTE
$852,500 was transferred from the Watkins Mill Road Extended project No. 500724.
