May ’19 Roads Report

We continue to await final quote to establish proper ditches along Morning Glory Turn just above the Jonquil Road intersection.  Final plan is in place to use rip rap to line this ditch and the other newly created ditch on East Daffodil.

We have already a quote from Rhoades Paving to fix this area, the other similarly damaged area on East Daffodil just down from Geranium, and two very new, very prominent potholes.  The quote is $1,650 and we will proceed as soon as the ditch is repaired on Morning Glory Turn.

We are still waiting to hear from Makco, the guard rail repair specialist, to give us quotes to re-install the guard rail on Morning Glory Turn and install new guard rail at the hairpin turn on Morning Glory Road.  They are extremely busy though and have no idea when we can get an estimate, let alone the actual work done.

We have successfully installed 6 wooden posts beside the road on West Daffodil at a problematic area down the first hill on the right.  These posts were planted in cement and have reflectors on them to better grab the attention of motorists.

We have lined the area of heavy erosion on Carnation Road with rip rap now to potentially reduce additional erosion and to make the area a bit safer.  We have also put up cones there though we may need to seek more permanent ways to mark the area since it may be quite some time before the $42,000 of repairs can be afforded.

Speeding is still a big issue in our community, and we ask for your help in driving the speed limit or less and being respectful of passing cars, especially those who tend to take over the road in big trucks.  We have compiled a list of the most common areas of speeding and will be presented it to the Sheriff’s Office again in the near future.

We have completed the bi-annual road-side trash pickup as well as the bi-annual culvert check and clean-up.  We expect to start the bi-annual road-side trimming in early June.
