Saunders Road Lift Station and Sewer Improvements 

Project Location: Sewer, force main and lift station along Saunders Road from Duffy Lane to Parkway North Boulevard in the Riverwoods area. 

Project Description: Replacement of 50-year-old sanitary sewer, enhancement and replacement of the Saunders Road Lift Station to increase pumping capacity, and installation of a new parallel force main to accept the increased pumping rate. The project will be constructed in two phases: 

  1. Approximately 8,000 feet of replacement forcemain pipes will be installed along Saunders Rd. from W. Course Dr. (northern boundary) to Parkway North Blvd. (southern boundary).  
  2. Construction of a new sanitary sewer lift station (pumping facility) and installation of more than 1,000 feet of new sanitary sewer from Duffy Ln. (northern boundary) to W. Course Dr. (southern boundary).   

During construction the community will observe construction traffic and noise, and temporary daytime lane shifts and lane closures will be required.
