General Information of Interest:

  • Milling Process: Milling the roads is a very noisy process. Milling will leave about a ¼” of old asphalt on the bedrock below.  However, there will places on the road where you will see bare bedrock.  This is normal. The bedrock is like a cobble stone walk.  It is solid, not loose gravel. All vehicles are permitted to drive on the milled roads. The width of the milling equipment is 7 feet wide.  Cul-de-sac roads are 10 feet wide whereas the other streets are 20 feet wide.   Therefore, if you live on a cul-de-sac road, it may be very difficult for anyone to drive on the cul-de-sac while the milling equipment is there.  Please plan for this inconvenience for your own driving and for others who may be coming to your home during the scheduled work.
  • Paving Process: Applying asphalt paving is much quieter.  Once the asphalt is applied it is recommended that all vehicles stay off the new pavement for 24 hours.  After the 24 hour wait it is okay for vehicles typically used by providers such as landscaping services, USPS, FedEx, UPS, pool service, health care providers, cleaning services, etc. to drive on the road.  Residents are advised to review their calendars and assure that whatever is scheduled for the paving dates will not jeopardize the new asphalt.
  • Cul-De-Sac Circles: For cul-de-sac roads we have a bigger concern. Because our cul-de-sac roads have a very tight turn radius, we need to keep heavy vehicles (school buses, trash/recycling trucks, moving vans, etc.) off the circles for one week.  
  • Mail Delivery: Mail delivery to the street cluster mailboxes may be suspended for 1-2 days at various times and at various cluster mailbox locations based on timing of the milling and paving processes.  Residents who must obtain their mail during the suspension period can pick their mail up at the Crystal River Post Office.  Otherwise, mail will be delivered when the road is available for driving. 
  • Trash & Recycling Collection: (Updated on 11/25/22) We had a conversation with the Operations manager at Florida Express.  Here is the plan we agreed upon.  (1) When the cul-de-sac roads (Litchfield, Havershall, & Torrington) have been paved, Florida Express will not enter the cul-de-sac roads for a week once new paving is laid.  This means no collection will occur on the cul-de-sac roads on January 13, 2023.  This is where ":neighbors helping neighbors" come in. Let's all put our trash bins on the curb on January 12 by 5 PM.  For this one day we will allow the cul-de-sac residents to deposit their trash in the bins of other residents who don't live on the cul-de-sac roads.  We are sure there are trash bins that will have extra room. (2) The road work crew starts their day in Fox Hollow at 7 AM.  This next  item applies to all Fox Hollow residents. On 4 specific Fridays when the road crew is working in Fox Hollow, trash collection will begin at 6 AM so that the trash truck is out of Fox Hollow before 7 AM.  On these specific 4 Fridays there will be no recycling collection -- so do not put your recycling bin out on 4 specified dates.  The 4 Fridays  are 1/13/23, 1/27/23, 2/17/23, and 2/24/23.
  • Traffic Control: Driving when restricted to one lane will be frustrating. Residents need to be patient and cooperative with one another. Off duty police traffic control will be employed only at the Fox Hollow entrance island when either milling or paving occurs at that location.  It is suggested that drivers use a clockwise rotation driving route on Cannondale and Glynborne whenever either of these roads is restricted to one lane.  Clockwise rotation may make your drive to/from your home longer depending on where you live in the village.  However, it should reduce the likelihood of having to deal with two-way traffic on a restricted lane.  Incidences of two-way traffic when restricted to one lane will occur despite best efforts because this suggested driving route is not known to outside visitors or businesses coming to our homes. Let’s face it -- some residents will not abide. The recommended driving route looks like this:
f7kz66YQRxod7CLu.jpg

Note that this driving route shows two-way traffic from the front entrance to the intersection of Cannondale at Cannondale.  This is unavoidable because we must allow drivers the ability to enter/exit our village.  When this section of the road is being worked upon drivers will have to use their best judgment to avoid on-coming vehicles. 

  • Dirty Driveways: Once asphalt is laid it takes time for it to fully set. The cooler the temperature, the faster asphalt sets.  It may take 6 months for the asphalt to fully cure.  We can expect to have tire marks on our driveways after driving on our newly paved roads.  As the road ages, the marks on our driveway will become fainter.  No violations for dirty driveways will be issued until after 8/31/2023.  However, residents may clean their driveways at will at any time.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Here is what will happen during each task of the project:

Mobilization of Project:  Pave-Rite assigns and schedules resources to the project (workers, equipment, supplies, etc.).  This task does not affect normal activities within the village.

Pre-Construction Video: Pave-Rite takes a video of the entire roadway throughout the village.  This task does not affect normal activities within the village. 

Set Up Staging Area:   Pave-Rite sets up a staging area near the village to keep equipment and supplies for the project.  Pave-Rite will be working on several local projects simultaneously so the staging areas will not be within Meadowcrest. 

De-Silt All Storm Drainage Pipes:  Pave-Rite cleans out all pipes that run underneath the road at the street grates.  Street grates are prepared for milling & paving during those steps of the process.

Temporary Erosion Control:  Pave-Rite installs temporary erosion control devices throughout the village where needed.

Mill & Clean Litchfield, Torrington, & Havershall:  Within a 3-day window Pave-Rite mills the entire road surface on the 3 cul-de-sac roads.  Cul-de-sac residents will be inconvenienced by the milling equipment taking up space on the road and the loud noise produced by the milling operation.  Residents are asked to refrain from driving on the roads until the milling equipment leaves their cul-de-sac street.

Asphalt Pave Litchfield, Torrington, & Havershall: Within a 2-day window Pave-Rite asphalt paves the entire road surface on the 3 cul-de-sac roads.  There are a couple of concerns, residents should be aware of:

  • Once the asphalt is applied it is recommended that all vehicles stay off the new pavement for 24 hours. 
  • It is not okay for heavy vehicles (trash trucks, school buses, moving vans, etc.) to drive around the cul-de-sac circles for at least a week after paving. 
Mill & Clean Glynborne:  Within a 2-day window Pave-Rite mills the entire road surface on Glynborne.  Because the road is 20 feet wide and the milling equipment is 7 feet wide, residents will be able to drive around the milling equipment safely as long as they pay attention to oncoming traffic.

Asphalt Pave Glynborne: Within a 3-day window Pave-Rite asphalt paves the entire road surface on Glynborne.  There are a couple of concerns, residents should be aware of:
  • Residents are requested not to drive on the road for 24 hours. Because there are no tight circles on this street, all vehicles of any weight, including heavy vehicles (school buses, trash/recycling trucks), may drive on the new asphalt after 24 hours.  
  • We have a school bus that comes through the area to pick up and drop off students on Glynborne. We will talk to the school district about pick-up and drop-off on Cannondale at Glynborne for that a week starting on paving day.

Mill & Clean Cannondale:  Within a 5-day window Pave-Rite mills one side of the entire road surface on Cannondale and, when finished, mills the other side.    Because the road is 20 feet wide and the milling equipment is 7 feet wide, residents will be able to drive around the milling equipment safely as long as they pay attention to oncoming traffic.  When the front entrance is being worked on there will be a police officer on Meadowcrest Blvd to assist with traffic in and out of the village.

Asphalt Pave Cannondale: Within a 5-day window Pave-Rite paves one side of the entire road surface on Cannondale and, when finished, paves the other side. When the front entrance is being worked on there will be a police officer on Meadowcrest Blvd to assist with traffic in and out of the village.  There are a couple of concerns, residents should be aware of:

  • Residents are requested not to drive on the paved portion of the road for 24 hours. Because there are no tight circles on this street, all vehicles of any weight, including heavy vehicles (school buses, trash/recycling trucks), may drive on the new asphalt after 24 hours.  
  • School bus service during this time frame will be a problem as we do not know exactly where Pave-Rite will be paving.  When paving occurs at the entrance It would be best if the students could be transported to/from school in residential vehicles for during the next 24 hours.

Thermoplastic Striping at STOP Signs:  Pave-Rite applies white thermoplastic striping on the roads at all STOP signs.  There is minimal inconvenience for residents as it takes about 5 minutes after the striping is applied for traffic to resume as normal. 

Clean Areas around Storm Drainage Areas and Staging Area:  Pave-Rite removes any protective devices around the street grates, removes any erosion control devices, and makes repairs to any areas where the road work process may have caused damaged. 

Final Inspection of Road Work:  When Pave-Rite has notified Pigeon-Ardurra (our road engineering company) that the road project is complete, Pigeon-Ardurra and FHVPOA will arrange a walk-through of the roads to determine if there are any issues that must be resolved before final payment is made to Pave-Rite.  Issue resolution will be handled by Pigeon-Ardurra.  Once Pave-Rite resolves all issues (if any), FHVPOA will pay Pave-Rite and Pigeon-Ardurra the final amount for the road project.  The road project will officially close.
