New Roads Committee (RC)

Chairman:

​The RC would like to thank Tony Bromm for his leadership over the psat numerous months as Chair of the RC and welcome Dave Langenfeld to his new role.

Options

As far as options and recommendations, they will be provided based on the three areas below:


​Business Section (Gate to Restaurants)

​This is obviously the most challenging area due to heavy truck traffic, lack of crown, lack of direct sunshine, etc. and will be the area the RC is most aggressive with in regards to recommend a solution.


Exterior Roads, including Cedar Lane

​This would represesnt the second tier of roads we need to address with a solution that will help establish a strong base/foundation, but still taking into consideration the number of heavy trucks that will be driven across it due to the SID Bank Stabilization Project.  We will be making recommendation since improvement is needed now and the RC will work with the SID in repairing any roads damaged by the truck traffic.


Interior Roads

​This represents the final tier of roads that will be addressed with the options and recommendations.

Current State

​The challenge of the Woodcliff roads is there is no foundation of gravel or hard rock to create a solid foundation, nor has the crown of the roads been aggressive enough to allow for proper drainage.  This has resulted in the majority of the top layer consisting of mainly fine materials from the crushed concrete that has been used for 5+ years as a source of aggregate.


​While the process of researching options, pricing, etc. has not proceeded at the pace the Roads Committee (RC) would have liked, we do feel that we are nearing the end of our process and will be in a position to present several options to the board, both near & long term, by late February to early March.


​The RC would like to thank the HOA Board for their patience as we complete our current discovery, assessment, and options/recommendations.  Also, we would like to thank Ken Skorseth (see Bio below) and Roger Goree (Goree Excavating) for their continued engagement in finding solutions that will fix our current road conditions.

​     Welcome to the Roads Committee (RC) Home Page


The purpose of this page is to share the work of RC as it investigates

options to address the issues, concerns, and problems of our current roads.


Goal - Transparency to the:

  • ​ Process being followed
  • Road Options
  • Pros / Cons of each option
  • Recommendation from the RC and it's industry subject matter expert​

​Problems Being Addressed:

  • ​Roads Stability and Performance
  • Lake Health
  • ​Dust Control

Aggregate Options

The following aggregate options are all being considered based on the sampling, ongoing road conditions, and industry experience (Ken Skorseth & Roger Goree).


Multi-layer Aggregate Solution

This 8 inch o more layered aggregate solution leveraging a combination of large rock, geotextile fabric, and an aggregate blend focused on creating plasticity to bind the rock and keep it in place under traffic and weather.


Top-layer Aggregate Solution

The top-layer aggregate solution is based on an aggregate blend focused on creating plasticity to bind the rock and keep it in place.  When achieved, this solution will harden and has been referred to as poor man's concrete.


Interim Aggregate Solution

​While this is not a recommendation of the RC, due to the SID Bank Stabilization project and budget constraints, this would be the option to treat the roads with a quality aggregate that is readily available through local quarries.

Obstacles / Challenges / Open Items

  • 2017+ Budget Constraints
    • 2017 Costs
    • Ongoing Costs
  • SID Bank Stabilization - if approved, truck traffic could / would have an impact on our options, timeline, etc.
  • Road Challenges - manhole covers, driveways, grading, slope, etc.
  • Drainage Ribbon and incorporating the results of the JEO Road Drainage Review
