As you may have noticed, the VDOT snow plows have made a bit of a mess of the main drags here in Broadlands. VDOT plows Claiborne Parkway, Broadlands Boulevard, and Waxpool Road/Truro Parish (among others). The large plows that are used on these main roads sometimes have a difficult time locating the edges of the roadways when they are snow covered, and they often run up the sloped curbs and onto the grass, skimming and damaging the surface of the turf. You can see the grass divots as you drive throughout the community. HOA funds are used to restore this turf damage in the spring. In an effort to assist the plows in identifying the edges of the roadways and keeping them off the turf, the HOA will be installing snow stakes every 50ft along the main roads. These 6ft orange stakes will be driven approximately 8″ into the ground at the edge of the turf where it meets the curb. We expect the stakes to be installed in the next week and they will remain until the threat of snow has greatly diminished (generally mid March). In future years, they will be installed at the beginning of the snow season, likely mid to late November.
