Larry:

Steve Weber from R.L. Rider examined the Fox Meade (Trifam) property in Bealeton to determine whether a trail would be feasible on that property.  He told me the following:

  1. Construction of the trail should start at the high end of the pond close to the property line with the houses.  This is to avoid having to make any repairs to the pond and avoid the floodplain.
  2. There is an electrical pole near Schoolhouse Road which would probably need to be relocated.
  3. There are a few manholes along the potential path that might need to be moved as well (assuming the trail can't be diverted around them).
  4. To build the trail along the existing grade without a significant amount of fill and grading would run about $80-100,000 (plus engineering/surveying costs, cost to move manholes & electrical pole, etc.).
  5. It is possible to build a trail on existing grade.  However, the stormwater drainage for the houses run along that strip to the creek on the other side.  He believes this drainage will cause wear on the trail which will result in the need for frequent maintenance and repaving of certain portions of the trail.
  6. The only way to avoid the above would be to regrade the backyards of the properties located along the trail or use a significant amount of fill raising the trail above the existing grade and have culverts at intervals along the trail.  Both of these options would be a major expense.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.  I will be passing this information along to Paul this afternoon and ask him to direct me as to the next step I should take.

 

Sincerely,

Tracy
