Sanitary Sewer Project at Wilson and Rollins Road

This spring, Lake County Public Works will be rehabilitating its sanitary sewer infrastructure under the intersection of Wilson and Rollins Road. The project consists of repairing and lining a critical sewer junction chamber located under the intersection pavement and other sanitary sewer lining work nearby. 

The contractor will need to work in the northeast corner of the Wilson and Rollins Road intersection, which will require new travel patterns and lane configurations through the intersection. Left turn lanes at the intersection will be temporarily removed, so traffic signal operations will be adjusted to provide for safe left turns. Westbound Rollins Road to northbound Wilson Road truck turning movements at the intersection will be restricted. A truck detour will be in place for approximately four weeks. 

Drivers may also notice additional sanitary sewer lining activities along Wilson Road, Rollins Road and at the west end of Old Rollins Road. Temporary daytime lane shifts during off peak travel times will be necessary to complete this adjacent sewer lining work. Please allow for extra travel time through the intersection and use caution when traveling through the work zone.

Construction for the entire project is anticipated to begin in May of 2021 and will last for approximately three months. LCPW is proactive in maintaining its infrastructure and one method to ensure continued service and eliminate potential environmental impacts is by rehabilitating sanitary sewer pipes.
