Thank you Ms. Ward. I have taken several steps that I hope will help remedy the situation, at least in our case here in the Broad Run area. I have notified our Board of Supervisors and had some correspondence with Holder Trumbo. (Thank you Mr. Trumbo). And I have notified Senator Vogel's office about the situation. The usual responses on this is that if there's no violation, there's nothing they can do. But I will be in touch with the State Police tomorrow and explain the situation. A few safety checks of these big rigs will most likely convince them to take a more open route.
In this case, the development is Del Webb's "Carter's Mill". I will lodge a complaint with them. If you can identify the developer in your situation on Casanova Road, I encourage you to do the same.
I'm not against development, but in our case, the development is in PWC, and the safety hazards are impacting Fauquier County.
Best of Luck.

Agreed Mr. Crandall it is worrisome, the same thing is happening on Casanova Rd. Large to super large semi-trucks using a narrow two-lane road with no shoulders, the same road that bicyclists and runners use. The road is showing a great deal of wear and tear, especially along the edges. I wonder sometimes if their GPS sends them on these routes to save time?
