Tuesday – Armor plans on milling the edges of Rivanna (East of Bella Terra Way) and Terrazza Crossing.
Wednesday thru Friday – Depending on weather, the contractor will start removal of the roads that are scheduled for replacement. Armor intends on coming right behind them and putting in the new sub-base. The process to remove all the bad sections could take 8 days. Armor has indicated that once the removal is complete from a section and they can bring in the new sub-base you will have access to your driveways.
Obviously, this work is somewhat dependent on the weather and they will try to make sure no parts of the roads are “opened up” and left exposed for extended periods of time.
I will post an updated map when I receive it from Armor.
Attached you will find the map showing the anticipated Phases for the road work. Please note, the red areas indicate where they will fully remove the existing road and replace with a new road. Green highlighted areas are for milling and overlay. We will continue to update with as much advanced notice when each area is planned to begin. Be aware, if your street is set for full replacement, you will be without access for 3-4 days. Milling and overlay sections will be without access for 3-4 hours.
Armor would like to go ahead and try to start the overlay on Sedonia beginning tomorrow. Obviously the work is subject to the weather. There is a 40-50% chance of rain in the morning. If it holds off, they will begin the overlay starting around 10 am. That would leave folks on Sedonia without access to their driveways from 10 am to 6 pm. However, if it rains they will either wait till next week or try to start on Friday.
As you may have noticed, they have begun milling the edges of Meritage and Sedonia Circle today. Armor expects that starting Wednesday they will begin with the repair/replacement of a large section along Rivanna. Addresses 2494, 2524, 2554 and 2527 Rivanna Way will be without access to their driveways for 2-3 days. I realize this is short notice, but the plan is fluid based on weather and other contractors availability.
Also, beginning Wednesday at 9 am the homes on Sedonia will not have ingress or egress to their driveways as they begin the overlay process. They expect you to be able to access your drives after 5 pm on Wednesday.
I will post a map with the planned phases later tonight or in the morning when Armor gets it to me.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience. If you have questions please direct them to me. Armor has requested to have a single contact point with the HOA.
The overall timeframe is 4-6 weeks total.
Thank you all.
UPDATE 4:30 5/17
Due to the weather and some other issues outside of our control, Armor is not going to start the replace/repair or the overlay on either Rivanna or Sedonia tomorrow as planned. It now looks like they will begin that project the first of next week. So, you will all have full access to your driveways tomorrow.
Item 1 (Board Retention) – passes with a vote of 124-8
Item 2 (Special Assessment) – passes with a vote of 126-6
Item 3 – Option 1 is chosen with a vote of 111-15
You will receive a Notice of Special Assessment letter in the coming days with instructions on payment of the 2016 installment.
Road repairs will begin within the next month with weather conditions being the main factor.
The Board is meeting with the asphalt company to discuss logistics of the repairs (i.e. where they will start, repair times, etc.) and will notify everyone of the plan in advance.
Please note, the repairs will be inconvenient for everyone in the neighborhood and we would ask that we all have patience and understanding during this very necessary and important process. It is likely that homeowners will have limited to no access to their driveways for a few days and we would ask that neighbors be understanding of parked cars in the street.
More information will be coming as the Board nails down the logistics.
The Board would like to thank the members of the road committee for lending their time and expertise to help guide us all through this project. I’d like to thank the other Board members for their help and dedication to getting this right. Finally, we want to thank all of you for being passionate about your neighborhood, for participating in the process and for having faith in the Board.
