Along Carroll Creek...
Carroll Creek Replacement Bridge
As the construction of the new Carroll Creek bridge continues, our community will be required to make some temporary adjustments in how we use the existing roads, trails, and walking paths. The area is currently congested with the ongoing work and already existing blind spots. The developer will place appropriate caution signs on the roads and trails leading to this area. 
In addition, during a few weeks of a critical phase, the existing bridge and new bridge will not be open to traffic of any sort. Alternate routing will be necessary for pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic making use of Paddington to Devon Pines to Newbridge to Farringdon to access Carroll Creek Rd and its adjoining streets. Devon Pines, Newbridge and Farringdon do not have walking paths, please be cautious, watching for increase residential and construction traffic. Please be respectful and courteous. 
News from Red Dirt Development regarding K2B Phase II Parcel Development
Recent favorable winter weather has allowed Red Dirt to make good progress on preparation for the newest section of Glenmore. After interviewing many builders, the developer has partnered with Craig Builders and Stanley Martin Homes to execute a vision for the homes to be built. The new section consists of 24 quarter-acre lots in Phase I, followed by an additional 19 quarter-acre lots in both Phase II and Phase III. 
Over the next few months, Stanley Martin Homes and Craig Builders will be working together to develop a tailored selection of home designs and exterior finishes that will create consistency in style, quality and design, all while offering many one level living opportunities. Construction of the community’s home sites and infrastructure will continue for the next five to six months, with home construction anticipated to commence in the early summer of this year.  Click to view a schematic of area under development.

Carroll Creek Bridge is in full swing with a projected completion alongside the new home section. The new state-of-the-art crossing will include a two-lane bridge, guardrail system, asphalt walking trail, and continuation of the Glenmore multi-use trail.

Additional information regarding home designs should be addressed to Stanley Martin sylvesCB@stanleymartin.com or Craig Builders glenmore@craigbuilders.net.
