The Lake Front Royal Sanitary District has contracted with Racey Engineering, PLLC of Luray to develop a comprehensive road & drainage study on the community’s 6.5 mile road system. Over the next several weeks, Racey’s team will be investigating the current conditions and deficiencies of the existing road and drainage system. This work will entail field survey work to determine the location of existing road right-of-ways, culverts, and drainage patterns. You may see your property corners flagged with survey ribbon and/or additional stakes. This survey work does not mean any type of work is imminent. The existing paved roadways will be core drilled to determine the depth and type of pavements as well as sub-surface conditions.
Once Racey’s team has gathered all necessary field data, they will be able to develop a classification of all the roadways, which will include required surface widths and depths of any pavements. Upstream drainage areas will be calculated to determine the sizes of roadway and private entrance culverts, as well as any special requirements for outfall ditches.
A community outreach meeting will be held later this summer or early fall to solicit input and feedback from the Advisory Committee and residents. Community input on problem areas will be extremely important in the process.
Lastly, a final report will be provided. It will provide an inventory of existing conditions, including culvert sizes, location, condition, etc., as well recommendations to address any problem areas. The final document will serve as a “Blue Print” for the community as we move forward to address future maintenance issues and major capital improvement projects.
Any questions about the study or survey work should be directed to your Advisory Committee or Mr. Bob Childress, Warren County Deputy Administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
