The start date for the reconstruction of the Marina Entrance, on Hwy. 22 across from Franco’s Health Club, is scheduled to commence Monday, October 28th. Demolition will start this coming Monday, October 28th. The Security Guards have moved into the temporary guardhouse already in anticipation of the demo. The EXIT LANE will be closed all day on Monday, October 28th starting at 8:00 am until the demolition is done. The demolition of the old guardhouse is expected to take One (1) day and then the foundation work will follow. The timeline to completion of the new guardhouse is approximately 90 days from commencement with weather permitting.
The project also includes widening both the entrance and exit lanes to two full lanes entering and two full lanes exiting. Once the construction and roadway improvements are done the re-landscaping of the entrance median and shoulders will follow with new signage and landscape lighting.
Other than the demo day this coming Monday, we do not anticipate any major interruption with traffic flow entering and exiting the subdivision until the roadway asphalt work commences approximately 60 days into the construction. We will be providing updates and details regarding any traffic pattern changes in advance of those changes taking place.
The Marina Entrance reconstruction is the last step in the first phase of our Master Plan to re-image Beau Chene. During the community-wide re-imaging workshops held in 2014, the entrances of Beau Chene, including the guard houses, were at the top of the list in need of improvements and updates. As a result of the re-imagining meetings the BCHOA received a master plan that incorporates many items, including walking paths and lighting for street signs, in addition to the renovation of all three guardhouses and entrances. The Board of Directors prioritized the projects based on urgency and financial costs. The renovation of the guardhouses was the first scheduled project from the master plan.
