 What’s this huge fence going up along RT. 15 North in Haymarket?

 

Many of our of Haymarket residents have been wondering about the huge fence going up along RT. 15N. The fence is actually a Noise Abatement Fence for the Westmarket Chase Neighborhood. This sound barrier fence is funded by Prince William County and it will be 12 feet high and constructed out of a medium gray composite material.

The Westmarket HOA informed the homeowners who have existing fences across the back of their property that it’s their option to remove these fences or not. Should a homeowner decide to remove the fence it’s recommended that they do so before the construction starts as it will make construction and maintenance of the new fence much easier. Homeowners with fences along the sides of their property extending back to the rear property line will not be allowed to tie into the new fence as it is on HOA property.

This wall will reduce the already shattered home values in this and surrounding communities.

The wall has been poorly designed with the materials used in construction easily supporting the posting of graffiti and other unauthorised materials. 

The wall will make the area look more like a ghetto rather than the family oriented green space centered that we moved into.

If the residents were worried about the traffic noise, they should have lobbied for a reduction in the speed limit on Rt 15.

"Tear down this wall" it is a mistake!
