March 9, 2021 Joint Board Matter: Endorsement of the Department of Transportation’s (FCDOT) Application for Funding through the FY 2021 Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) Grant Program

Joint Board Matter with Chairman Jeffrey C. McKay, Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck and Lee District Supervisor Rodney Lusk


The Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is seeking the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors’ support for an application for funding through the United States Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) discretionary grant program for the Richmond Highway Widening (Sherwood Hall Lane to Mount Vernon Highway) project.

The Richmond Highway Widening project will address numerous transportation challenges such as chronic congestion, costly delays, and safety issues for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists. These challenges will be addressed through the implementation of critical multimodal improvements, such as widening this section of highway from four to six lanes, intersection improvements, secure crossings, an off-road bicycle path, and continuous sidewalks. It will provide a median reservation for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).

The total estimated project cost for the Richmond Highway widening is $415 million. The project currently has approximately $348 million programmed through local, regional, state, and federal funding sources. FCDOT will request up to $67 million in INFRA grant funding to complete funding for the project.

The INFRA grant submission is due March 19, 2021. The Notice of Funding Opportunity was just released on February 17, 2021.



Therefore, Mr. Chairman, I move that the Board approve the attached resolution for the Department of Transportation’s application for federal funding from the FY 2021 INFRA Grant Program.
