Roadwork Advisory: Tar & Chip List for August 2018

I

Written by Anthony Morelli

On August 7, 2018

It’s that time of the season that can be a headache for those affected, but please trust that this process is necessary to maintain our excellent roadway system with a proven process in the most cost-effective manner. This time around, however, we’re getting the new out as early as we have information, and that time is now. It should give everyone ample time to prepare for the Tar & Chip Process and make adjustments for the period of time it takes to complete.

The contractor has already done most, if not all, of their prep patchwork in advance of the full Tar & Chip Process which is scheduled to take place on or about August 20th, 2018 weather permitting.

We will follow-up this blast with any additional information and hopefully some preparation tips for members as soon as we can.  Thank you for your patience. The following is the list of roadways to be improved:

  • EVERGREEN PLACE
  • ASHBY CIRCLE
  • DOGWOOD DRIVE, INCLUDING CIRCLE
  • HIGHLAND DRIVE
  • LAUREL DRIVE
  • BAKER DRIVE
  • CONNECTOR WAY (Laurel to Lakeview above Yieders)
  • LAKEVIEW DRIVE (From Connector Way to Clubhouse Entrance)
  • MASTERS DRIVE
  • FAIRWAY CIRCLE
  • PAR COURT
  • PUTTER PLACE
  • COLONIAL DRIVE
  • LAKE HOLIDAY ROAD

TIPS:

  1. Do NOT exceed the speed limit. In fact, the slower you drive, the less tar & chip you will throw and the less likely you’ll damage the work designed to improve the roads. Driving slowly over freshly sealed roads aids and accelerates the finishing process. The recommended speed to aid this process is 10-15 miles per hour for the first 24-48 hours after completion. If you can hear the chips striking your car, you’re driving too fast.
  2. Motorcyclist should exercise extreme caution when driving on this roads or avoid them altogether for the first 24-48 hours.
  3. Leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you to allow extra braking distance in the event of a sudden emergency.
  4. Inspect your car for tar frequently and clean it off sooner rather than later for the first 24-48 hours.
    Bicyclists and pedestrians/pets should avoid these roadways for the first 24-48 hours.

Respectfully,
Anthony Morelli
Board Secretary
