Canyon Lake multi-million dollar road project set to begin January 10

The Canyon Lake Property Owners Association’s multi-million dollar road project is set to begin on Monday, January 10.

According to the POA, the $5.6 million rehabilitation project includes replacing approximately 1.3 million square feet of asphalt on over 60 segments of streets in 2022. It is expected to continue in 2023 with approximately $5 million worth of repairs, and $2 to $3 million the following years, for several years. The POA anticipates the 2022 phase of the project to be completed by June 3.

The initial phase will be to replace concrete cross gutters and spandrels at various locations. The damaged areas of concrete cross gutters will be replaced starting Monday, January 10, through Friday, January 21, at the following locations:

  • Boating Way and Redwood Drive
  • Yellow Gold Drive and Compass Drive
  • Blue Teal Drive and Red Lure Place
  • White Sail Place and Cove View Street
  • Santana Court and Cove View Street
  • Cove View Street and Cross Hill Street
  • Gulf Stream Drive and Rim Rock Place
  • Wild Rice Drive &and Rim Rock Place
  • Happy Hunter Drive and Clear Water Drive
  • Happy Hunter Drive and Spray Drive

Temporary no-parking signs will be posted in the work area 48 hours prior to work commencing. Any vehicle parked in areas scheduled for concrete replacement between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. will be towed without further notice at the vehicle owner’s expense, the POA said.

Following the concrete repairs, the first phase of asphalt replacement will begin on January 31. There will be a total of nine phases. Each two-week phase will consist of the following:

  • Notification of affected residents at least one week in advance.
  • Removing the top 3.5-inch layer of existing asphalt on all streets in the phase.
  • Pulverizing and blending the remaining asphalt, base, and subgrade material and construct a new 12-inch thick layer of Cement Stabilized Pulverized Road Base Material (CSPB).
  • Grading, proof rolling and moisture curing of the CSPB Road Base Material.
  • Continued moisture curing of the CSPB the remainder of the first week, including Saturdays and Sundays (using a water truck to keep the material damp).
  • New 3.5” thick Asphalt paving and rolling likely started at the beginning of the second week.
  • Raising utility covers and the completion of each phase.

Residents of each phase will also be notified by no parking cones, barricades, and signage at least 48 hours prior to their phase. Residents should expect to park their vehicles outside the phase location during the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.

There will be no parking and extremely limited vehicular access to affected residences during those hours, Monday through Friday. Depending on the weather, some weekend work may be required and that will be announced as necessary. “In general, the only weekend work will be the moisture curing, i.e. 2-3 passes with a water truck per day,” the POA said.

The project will be jointly overseen by the POA general manager, the director of Operations, and GMU Pavement Engineering, who will be providing regular plant and site inspections, observation, and testing services. 

The Canyon Lake POA owns and maintains 37 miles of private roads. The last major road paving project was completed in 2012/13 and resulted in streets that failed long before their expected design life. This led to years of litigation against the contractor, suppliers, and engineers.

According to the POA, the contractor, Hardy and Harper, Inc., and the project engineer, Albert A. Webb Associates, have settled for $5,5 million. Those funds are currently in the POA’s Road Reserve Fund. “We currently have $10,111,025 in our Road Reserve Fund,” the POA said. “Our team remains optimistic about recovering additional funds against the one remaining asphalt supplier.”
