Painting at Balfour Beatty
Detrick Homes/Balfour Beatty began a large scale exterior painting project in the Catoctin View and Monocacy Meadows neighborhoods on Aug. 7. The project is expected to continue for three months and will consist of the repair, preparation, and painting of exterior siding and trim components of all previously painted surfaces.

The Balfour Beatty Communities Renovations Safety Plan will enforce the safety and personal injury prevention plan and appropriate precautions will be taken to clearly demarcate active construction areas.

What this means to residents:
1. Prior to painting your home move any belongings on patios (front and back) away from the home. Perhaps place in your garage.
2. Vehicles cannot be parked in the driveway.
3. HVAC in your home may be interrupted for a brief period of time while painting is done around the heat pump outside of your home.
4. Residents need to make an effort to protect your own privacy (close curtains/blinds).
5. Individuals and specific arrangements will be made with residents for painting of exterior doors (doors will need to be left open for a drying period).
Regular communications will occur during the project. Questions can be addressed khowell@bbcgrp.com.

Road Closure - UPDATE
1. Doughten Drive between First Flight Court and West Fagan Street will be closed to install a water drainage pipe and was expected to be complete by Aug. 28. Due to crews encountering a great amount of rock, the project has been extended and the road closure is extended until Sept. 18.

2. Beasley Drive- A portion of Beasley Drive between Hamilton Street and Ware Drive will be sectioned off on Sept. 5 and 6 for trenching activity. The area will be marked by soft, traffic barriers and drivers should adjust their driving patterns in accordance.

Road Construction

Amber Drive- Construction on the new portion of Amber Drive from Ditto Avenue to Army Avenue and will continue for two weeks.
This will require a period of time when there is only on lane traffic passing Ditto Avenue while the work is being performed. The contractor will take special efforts so that at least one lane can be left open during the daily construction hours of 7:00 am to 5 pm. At night the roadway will be opened for two lanes of traffic. Proper direction and safety measures will be in place.
