REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Development Services Agency respectfully requests Controlling Board approval of $1,500,000.00 from fund 4W00, ALI 195629 (Roadwork Development Grant), in FY21, to the City of Union, for public roadwork improvements in support of the Amazon.com Services LLC project in the City of Union, Montgomery County.  
  Roadwork Development Grants are awarded for public roadwork improvements that support the expansion or attraction of businesses. Eligible costs include widening, paving, road construction and reconstruction, and right-of-way infrastructure improvements such as sewer or utility lines.

In order to assist the Amazon.com Services LLC project, roadwork will consist of the widening of Dog Leg Road from Union Airpark Boulevard to Old Springfield Road, the widening of Old Springfield Road from Union Airpark to Dog Leg, the improvement of the intersection of Dog Leg and Old Springfield, and the installation of an industrial-sized roundabout at the intersection of Union Airpark and Dog Leg. The new Amazon fulfillment center will generate significant new traffic on unimproved 2-lane local roadways from both freight and employee vehicles. Upgrading the local roadways to reduce congestion is a necessity for the proposed site when considering the size of the proposed facility and the traffic already being generated by nearby industrial and distribution facilities.

As a result of the project and State assistance provided, 1,500 new, full-time-equivalent jobs will be created.
