November 2016

The month of September has brought progress on negotiations leading to the transfer of Phase Four to the HOA. In a meeting on the 21st with Blenheim, the Board, and Paul Brager representing the Transition Committee, received a commitment that Blenheim intends to complete the transition in November and definitely before the year end.

Additional agreements were made by Blenheim to honor several “punch list” items including special landscaped plantings around the storm drain pond, replacement of dead trees in the common swale, adding top soil to portions of the swale to improve drainage, reseeding and completing the sidewalk at Admiral Promenade. These improvements will be made in October. To read the rest in November's The Breeze click here.

Today is:

Street Paving Delay

There has been a delay in the construction and completion of the two remaining Blenheim homes. The HOA was assured that both homes would be completed by the third week in October. It now looks like they might go into the first week of November. This delay will have a major impact on the road work that was scheduled to start on Monday, October 24.

Road work in Phase 4 is still a priority and must be completed before any other paving is done in Bay Crossing. This work cannot begin until Sussex County Public Works Department gives Blenheim the green light and the County will supervise to make sure the work is done in accord with best quality standards. As of today, that authorization to proceed has not been given. Therefore paving work in Phase 4 will not begin on October 24 and has been postponed until sometime during the week of October 31.

This push back in schedule has had a major effect on the planned schedule to start the repair and repaving of Bay Crossing Blvd. and Vessel Cove. We are going to reschedule this work until the Spring of 2017. The reason is that to start repair and then paving in the middle of November is not advised by either the County PWD or our contractor. The concern is that colder weather could have an adverse effect on the curing of the road surface and could impact the quality of the finished product. If the weather remained warm throughout November and into December the roads would cure, but the HOA Board does not feel the risk is worth taking.

Nighttime Work to Begin for Intersection Improvements at Bay Crossing Boulevard on Route 1 Lewes

Bay Crossing Boulevard on Route 1 Lewes The crossing on Route 1 at Bay Crossing Boulevard will be closed for approximately two months while crews reconstruct and make improvements to the median.

The Delaware Department of Transportation's (DelDOT) contractor, JJID, Inc., was scheduled to begin work on Monday, October 10 (but hasn't) to reconstruct the existing median turn-lane channelization to improve sight distance at the Bay Crossing Boulevard median crossover. Improvements will also be made to the drainage system in the median.

Route 1 northbound and southbound between Bay Crossing Boulevard and Postal Lane/Melson Drive will have left lane closures and left-turn lanes closed from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. Monday evening until Friday morning. There will be no lane closures on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings.

This project is anticipated to be complete by ?????, pending weather.

Curb and Sidewalk Cement Repairs in Bay Crossing Beginning October 24

Those in the community who have noticed orange markings on curbs and sidewalks with cracks will begin to see the removal of those sections in order that they can be repaired. The Board has been notified that the work to repair cracked sections will begin during the week of October 24 and possibly as soon as Monday of that week. Work will progress in the community till completed throughout Phases 1 to 3 although at this time it is not known where work will begin. It is requested that homeowners do not park on or close to curbs that have been marked and help to prevent any none residents and contractors from parking close to those areas as well. Also avoid marked sections on sidewalks as they are worked on. While contractors are working on these repairs, please drive with added caution and a little slower around contractors.

Seven homes will have work done on sections of curbs in front of their driveways. As work is in progress and until repaired cement sections are cured, those homeowners impacted may want to plan to have their vehicles parked in the street. During this work and the curing of the cement, access to driveways will be limited. The homes that will be impacted are:

34922 Vessel Cove
34909 Bay Crossing Blvd (on the circle)
34991 Jetty Shores
34881 Seaward Circle
34827 Capstan Lane
34951Compass Cove
34734 Maritime Way
As work progresses on this project, your cooperation will be appreciated. It is anticipated that once work begins, it should be completed within 2 to 4 days depending on weather.
