YORK – Could relief from truck traffic be en route for the residents of Springfield Road? York County Administrator Neil Morgan has tasked the county’s engineering contractor, AH Environmental of Newport News, to study a way to create an entrance to the Tranquility construction site from the north side of the property.

“They have promised us their draft report sometime in late June, so I

hope to have an update no later than July,” Morgan told the York County Board of Supervisors May 16. 

AH Environmental will assess the feasibility of constructing a temporary access road from Hawk’s Nest Drive.

“This would allow construction vehicles to access along the north side of the new development and mitigate use of Springfield Road for construction vehicle access,” according to the consultant’s work order.

A solution can’t come soon enough for residents whose narrow, rutted road is currently the only way onto the 84-acre site.
