Emerald Lake Village District (“ELVD”) within the Town of Hillsborough was established in 1979 for the community surrounding Emerald Lake, formerly known as Gould Pond. Originally a subdivision of seasonal homes, it has developed into primary homes for the majority of its residents. ELVD through a Board of Commissioners manages the well based water system, the beaches and recreational areas, and approximately fourteen miles of roads.

ELVD is also a community of people who enjoy the unique advantage of their own lake and beaches, as well as the proximity of Fox Forest, Pat’s Peak for skiing, and access to the shopping and dining available in Hillsborough, while located close to Concord in the southwest part of New Hampshire.

    Red Fox Crossing Bridge

    Posted 11/8/2018

    On Wednesday, November 7, 2018, Commissioners Wayne Held and Linda Whiting met with Skippy Edwards, District’s Road Agent, and Wright-Pierce Engineering Representatives to explore a temporary fix to the Red Fox Crossing Bridge. Skippy Edwards and the engineers examined the scope of the damage and erosion to the support walls of the bridge.

    After careful examination, the engineers provided the necessary procedures necessary for the bridge’s repair until a more permanent resolution can be established. The bridge currently has a large cement slab that runs across the culverts. The heavy rainstorms cause the inlet water flow to erode the surrounding earth causing the release of the supporting boulders on the northwest corner of the bridge. This caused the slab to dip down on the northern side and creating a large gap beneath the slab’s south side underbelly.

    Between Skippy Edwards and the engineers, a formidable plan of action was developed. The temporary repair would consist of utilizing an excavator digging up the areas preceding the slab on both sides and reinforcing the slab’s underbelly and rebuilding the northwest corner of the bridge of the fallen boulders. This will reinforce support to the slab. This procedure would temporarily strengthen the slab without the integrity support from the existing culverts.

    After the slab’s underbelly support has been completed, gravel would then be placed on top of the slab completing the temporary repair. This repair would be limited to vehicle usage up to six tons. The tonnage warning signs would be strategically placed on both sides of the bridge. Skippy Edwards indicated he could do the repair for an estimated $10,000 and could be completed in 3-4 weeks.

    At the District’s BOC Workshop Meeting held on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, the BOC approved Skippy’s repair plan to the bridge with the estimate cost financed from the Road and Bridge CIP Fund.
