The Commonwealth Transportation Board passed a resolution this afternoon that will allow the transfer of Columbia Pike to move forward.
The transfer of the Pike from state to county control could take place as soon as October 1, but first VDOT Commissioner Gregory A. Whirley must execute a “Memorandum of Agreement” with the county. After the county re-ratifies the agreement at its Sept. 25 board meeting, and once Whirley executes the agreement — no earlier than October 1 — the handover will take effect.
The transfer is expected to help the county speed up redevelopment of the Columbia Pike corridor, which includes construction of a Columbia Pike streetcar line.
Update on 9/16/10 — VDOT is retaining the portion of Columbia Pike around Washington Boulevard until the new Washington Boulevard bridge is built.
