Page 379, after line 38, insert:
"E. 1. VDOT is hereby directed to effectuate the closure and relocation of the Short  Pump area headquarters from its current location in the vicinity of Pouncey Tract Road in Henrico County to a site more suitable for such activities at a location where VDOT truck movement does not interfere with the character of the surrounding neighborhoods and development.  
2.  VDOT shall solicit proposals for such relocation under the Public Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (PPEA) by July 1, 2006, unless unsolicited proposals for such project are received prior to that date.  Such solicitation shall include provisions to sell and convey, upon consultation with the Attorney General, and in consideration of payment of fair market value consideration, the land on which the facility is located.  The department shall report to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by September 1, 2006, on the status of such solicitation, with an additional report to be submitted by November 15, 2006 setting out the results of the solicitation and attendant negotiations.  
2.  If substantial progress has not been achieved by December 15, 2006 and/or VDOT has rejected all proposals received under the PPEA, VDOT shall convey this property without consideration to the Henrico Industrial Authority and relocate its area headquarters to other suitable property owned by the Department, such as the I-64 rest area in Goochland County."

(This amendment requires VDOT to solicit PPEA proposals for the construction of a new facility to replace the existing VDOT area headquarters along Pouncey Tract Road in Henrico County. If an agreement is not entered into by December 15, 2006, VDOT is directed to convey the property to Henrico County and relocate its area headquarters to available land at the I-64 rest area just west of the existing facility.)
