Plantation 7 Drainage Improvements Project

Pecan Grove Residents,

Construction of the Plantation 7 Drainage Improvements Project will be starting during the week of December 5. This construction area for this project will include work on Hole Nos. 2, 3, and 9, along with underground infrastructure within the Right-of-Way of Plantation Drive, Old South Drive, and Rambling Stone Drive. An increased amount of heavy truck activity will occur at the golf cart crossing on Old South Drive and Plantation Drive. The contractor’s expected completion date is April 1, 2017. We appreciate your patience as we continue to improve the drainage infrastructure in the MUD.

The Contractor will be restricted to only working on the golf course until the first week of January. This is being done to minimize the disturbance of all residential activities during the Christmas holiday.

Drainage Improvements Project Construction Update

Residents of Pecan Grove MUD,

Because of weather and other delays outside the District’s control, construction activities for the drainage improvements project continue along Plantation Drive. This construction will continue along the road for the next couple of weeks while school is starting. To ensure children can adequately walk to school, the Directors have instructed the Contractor to put a stabilized walking area along the roadway where sidewalks have been removed.

The Directors also have asked the Contractor to cease construction activity during the hours of the drop-off and pick up times of the day. The Contractor and representatives of the District will be on site watching the activity to ensure the safety of the children is maintained.

If you have any concerns or questions feel free to contact an engineer for the District (Grady Turner) at (713)777-5337.
