Asphalt Maintenance Starting Monday, August 19th BCA will resume its asphalt maintenance program starting Monday, August 19th. Work is scheduled to occur through Wednesday, August 28th. We will be using a green technology to complete this process. Asphalt rejuvenator will be applied to streets in Sections 22 & 29, Brandt Townhomes, RB Condos (Section 13), Town Center Residential, and Trent Grove; Brambleton Corner and Stratford Landing parking lots; and on several trails (see map and street list). Asphalt maintenance will include crack filling and seal coating, followed by re-striping of parking space lines and stop bars. Roads may be closed for up to 12 hours, and minor inconveniences can be expected. Visit www.brambletonhoa.com/asphalt for more information, including a preparation checklist for impacted residents.
