COMMUNITY PROJECTS

FRONT ENTRANCE 

 (Status: Under Construction)
We are redesigning the community’s entrance at Route 50 and South Riding Boulevard.

1/12/2023 Update: Our beautiful sign is complete, stone and granite work are slated for completion by the end of February. Final grading expected in early spring and landscaping to follow soon after we are looking forward to opening this park to the community.

Milling & Paving

 (Status: N/A)
The community will be undergoing an asphalt rehabilitation project.

 

 

 

What to Expect Before and After the Project Starts:

  • All cars will need to be removed starting at 7:00 Cars are welcome to return the following morning.
  • You will not be able to exit or re-enter the closed section of the community until all barricades have been removed by a Finley Asphalt representative.
  • Plan to move your vehicles to a legal parking space outside of your section the night prior to work beginning in your section of the property.
  • South Riding Proprietary or Finley Asphalt will not be able to tell you where to park your cars on the nights where your section will be closed. Please seek street parking and pay attention to all laws and signs.
  • Remember that any vehicles left parked in parking areas that are to be closed will be towed to a nearby street that is not being paved.
  • If you plan to be on vacation during this time, please make sure that your vehicle is not parked in any visitor parking spot or road surface within the work area.
  • You will be able to access your homes at all times during the project by foot.
  • “Pardon our Dust” The entire project process will create dust and will be a dirty process – It is advisable to keep your windows closed, cars parked away from work areas especially if you are sensitive to the dust and noise.
  • Finley Asphalt nor South Riding Proprietary will be responsible for cleaning the interior of homes, garages or providing car washes due to dust caused from construction.
  • Please mark any invisible fencing or sprinkler heads near the work area. *Note: South Riding Proprietary is not responsible for any breakage or displacement of items installed within easement areas.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Proprietary at townhall@southriding.net, 703-327-4390, or 43055 Center Street, South Riding, Virginia 20152.
  • Those affected will receive more information by mail on where to place their trash cans for pickup.
  • This process does take a couple of days to complete, your patience is appreciated, and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience. In the event weather conditions delay this project, please check the website southriding.net for updates.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding with regard to this project. The crew performing the work is very helpful, but will require your patience so that they can get the job done as seamlessly and as quickly as possible

 Sidewalk replacement

 (Status: N/A)
Designated community sidewalks are replaced for maintenance.

Marking Process:

  • The sidewalk or section of sidewalks is identified as a hazard.
  • SR Staff marks the slab(s) with orange spray paint for tracking purposes and where appropriate to highlight a hazardous portion.
  • An asphalt cold patch may be applied or the concrete may be ground down as an interim solution to alleviate a trip hazard.
  • The sidewalk(s) are added to our tracking list.

Two to three times each year a request for proposal for sidewalk concrete work is solicited, bids are reviewed and approved by the Budget and Finance Committee.

 

  • Staff posts signage a few days before the vendor begins work asking that residents flag any irrigation heads. South Riding Proprietary is not responsible for damage to irrigation or invisible fencing placed within easements or that is not setback to allow for reasonable maintenance.
  • All sidewalks to be repaired or replaced will be marked with an ORANGE “X or BP”.
  • Please move your vehicle away from the marked sidewalk by 7:30 a.m
  • The contractor begins the work using a concrete saw to cut the slabs to be completed that day.
  • A bobcat with front forks lifts the concrete slab up out of the ground.
  • Another team cuts tree roots that have caused the slab to raise in the first place. They are careful to cut no more than 30% of the roots as 40% or more in one year is harmful to a tree.
  • Forms made of wooden two by fours are placed in the area and concrete is poured and leveled.
  • Another team comes in a few days later once the concrete has cured and removes the orange cones and forms.
  • A few days later another team comes to re-establish the surrounding area with seed & soil.

Please do not walk on any area being installed with new concrete for a minimum of 72 hours.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Proprietary at townhall@southriding.net or 703-327-4390
