All work areas are estimates provided verbally by Hanson's on 7/5/2022 and Hanson's will determine the scope of the project as they progress. They will address the drainage issues which will include reworking ditches, cleaning out the culvert's, cleaning out the cattle guards, etc. And, of course, all work areas will be graded when adding roadbase. The roads listed above are in no particular order. Hanson's will prioritize according to need/budget.
Roadbase with gravel will be used which is better suited than what was used in the past. The roadbase is more porous, better quality and thus, better for drainage.
FENCES/GATES INSTALLED ON THE RANCH
Please keep in mind that the roads on the ranch grant GRR POA a 60' easement. Please do not place fences in the easements so the ditches can be maintained for proper drainage. Gates over the easements are not allowed without a variance issued from the Board.
Please consider adding gravel to the base of your driveway where water runoff causes damage to our roads. And, proper grading of your driveway, if it runs downhill toward the road, is important for maintenance and will keep our costs down.
And, please slow down, as excessive speeds damage the road surfaces and cause washboarding.
The roads will be plowed when we have a minimum of 4" of snow but may vary based on water content of snow.
