Mooring Buoy Redevelopment Project Update
As our team continues to make progress with the design and planning of the Mooring Buoy Redevelopment Project, we look to provide another detailed update for our homeowners and stakeholders. This project’s scope, which is scheduled to commence in September 2023 following the Labor Day holiday, will include the installation of new stormwater drainage infrastructure, roadway paving and realignment, and leisure pathway reconfiguration and realignment. The Broad Creek Public Service District will also coordinate domestic waterline replacement during the project. The work is targeted for completion in April 2024. Our objective is to modernize the infrastructure, improve safety and accessibility, and enhance the overall experience for those who live, work, and play in our community.
On June 30th, the Association held a “town hall” open forum meeting to solicit feedback and suggestions from our homeowners regarding this project. The Association received excellent feedback from the participants, and we look forward to continued homeowner engagement throughout the project.
The redevelopment work will span from the 3-way stop at Sea Lane to the intersection of Port Tack. Although no construction work will be performed on the T-streets during this project, residents on these streets (Dinghy, East Wind, Flotilla, Galleon, High Rigger, Iron Clad, Junket) can also expect minor impacts due to construction-related activities. Additionally, residents along Sea Lane and Port Tack should expect higher-than-normal traffic volumes, as construction detour redirection for vehicles and pedestrians will occur.
If you reside in or rent a home on Mooring Buoy or the adjacent T-streets, you may experience limited accessibility to your driveway and/or mailbox at certain times during the project. All homeowners within the direct construction zone on Mooring Buoy can expect their driveway apron to be reconstructed resulting from widening the leisure pathway and minor road alignment. The project and construction management teams will have a daily presence on the construction site to ensure that any accessibility issues are minimized.
The Association recommends not scheduling any residential construction projects during this timeframe. If your property is on the rental market, please notify guests that parking may be a concern and that entering or exiting your property could be challenging at times. There will also be a considerable amount of underground utility work that could cause a disruption of service in a worst-case scenario. In cases where disruptions are experienced, our project manager will work with the utility providers to ensure rapid restoration of service.
The PDPOA Project Management Team will likely make daily adjustments to the construction schedule based on weather and utility conflicts. Unlike a new construction project, the contractor will likely encounter several unanticipated challenges. For example, if the pipe crew discovers unmarked utilities, they may have to remobilize to a different area until the conflict has been resolved by the utility crews. Despite these anticipated challenges, our experienced contractors have a proven track record of quick and efficient problem resolution, which will minimize the impact on our homeowners and guests.
