PICKETT DOWNS ROADWAY MAINTENANCE COST PROJECTIONS
(November 12, 2007)
BACKGROUND: The Road Fund started in 1995 at $80 per lot, and was raised to $150 per lot in 2005. This equals a total of $1250 per lot (in 2007) over the entire duration of the Road Fund (12 years). The Figure below has the numbers listed in the table above, plotted over time with no edge work factored into the total price. The rate of increases at only $150 per lot means we will NEVER reach the cost of the roads! Even at $300/lot/yr we will not catch-up to the increasing costs of the roads. Asphalt has doubled in price in the last 5 years: Hot Shots paid $32.50 per ton in 2002, and they are now paying $60.00 per ton! The essence of the Problem is in this graph….and the numbers are not invented. We have an official bid from Hot Shots from Sept. 6, 2002 that indicates all the roads (with no edge work) could have been paved for $116,735. The current bid (Aug. 12, 2007) is $183,192; a 56.9% increase in 5 years. If road costs go up by an equal amount over the next 5 years, the cost will be approximately $287,428 in 2012.
Road Repavement Costs (no edging work): 2002 compared to 2007
Road lengths: 2002 2007
a) Downs Way + Sultan = 1.1 miles 51,888 79,497 (already spent in 2007 for Sultan Circle)
b) Secretariat = 0.5 miles 19,745 34,180
c) Mount Royal = 0.3 miles 14,982 23,681
d) Gallant Fox = 0.3 miles 11,840 19,390
e) Whirlaway = 0.2 miles 7,514 11,727
f) Eclipse = 0.1 miles 10,765 14,717 % increase
g) Total = 2.5 miles $ 116,735 $ 183,192 56.9% up
Road Costs with Edging: 2007 Edge work Paving Total
a) Downsway + Sultan = 1.1 miles 57,344* 79,497** 136,844
b) Secretariat = 0.5 miles 22,285 34,180 56,465
c) Mount Royal = 0.3 miles 16,910 23,681 40,591

g) Total = 2.5 miles $ 130,327 $ 183,192 $ 313,519
*Edge work for Sultan Circle and Downs Way is estimated based on the other roads in the Aug. 12th bid.
**Paving for Sultan Circle and Downs Way as completed this year was $79,497; edge work has not yet been done.

PICKETT DOWNS PHASE I
ROADWAY MAINTENANCE COST PROJECTIONS
(January 4, 2004)
ITEM 1 Resurface all streets w/1” asphalt
Based on discussion with Dave Lowe, an engineer with the Land Development Division of DRMP - $3.50/square yard (asphalt only – no milling)
Calculations: 26,675 s.y. x $3.50/s.y. = $93,362.50
+ 10% contingency for unknown costs = $9,336.25
Misc. pothole & other repair work = $10,000.00
ITEM 2 Milling outside 4-feet of each side of roadway
Based on discussion with Dave Lowe & Theresa Shaw, both engineers at DRMP, and Tom Bressani, a senior construction inspector with DRMP. This would only require being done on the outside 4-feet of each side of each street, in order to match existing driveway elevations without a drop-off (also to match curb heights when curbs are involved). Mill ˝-inch thickness only, leaving ˝-inch in place. Cost would normally be $1.00/square yard, but for our conditions, multiply by 1.5 or 2.0. (use $2.00/sq. yd.).
Calculations: 14,660.07 feet of roadway length x 4 feet width each side x 2 =
117,280.56 square feet = 13,031.17 square yards
13,031.17 sq. yds. x $2.00/sq. yd. = $26,062.35
+ 10% contingency for unknown costs = $2,606.24
ITEM 3 Extend base material (all streets – 8-inches wide, 6-inches thick each side)
Based on discussion with Dave Lowe, an engineer with the Land Development Division of DRMP - $1.00/inch depth/square foot of surface area. For 6-inches depth = $6.00/sq. yd. For 8-inch width, cost = $0.444/linear foot. For our conditions, multiply by 5 = $2.22/linear foot (use $2.20/LF)
Calculations: 29,306 L.F. x $2.20/L.F. = $64,473.20
+ 10% contingency for unknown costs = 6,447.32
ITEM 4 Extend pavement width on first entry road 2 feet on each one-way lane (4 ft increase total) with 8” additional base material each side
Based on discussion with Dave Lowe, an engineer with the Land Development Division of DRMP – 2.0 feet width of paving added to side of road + 6-inches width x 6-inches depth of additional base material each side. Cost = $21.00/square yard for 2.5-feet of stabilization and base material (each side – 5 feet total), plus $3.50/square yard for the 2-foot asphalt overlay (each side – 4 feet total).
Calculations: Base material extension – 5 ft x 176.5 L.F. road = 98 s.y.
Pavement extension – 4 ft x 176.5 L.F. road = 78.5 s.y.
98 s.y. x $21.00/s.y. = $2058.00
78.5 s.y. x $3.50/s.y. = $275.00
Less previous calculation for 8-inch wide extra base material
176.5 L.F. x $2.20/L.F. = ($388.00)
+ 10% contingency for unknown costs = $194.50
· Basic resurfacing with road repairs (Item 1) $112,698.75
· Basic resurfacing with milling and road repairs (Items 1,2) $141,367.34
· Resurfacing/road repairs/8-inch base extension (Items 1,2,3) $183,619.27
· Resurfacing/milling/road repairs/with 8” base ext./ (Items 1,2,3,4) $214,427.36
entryway widening $2,680.34/lot
