New Northbound IL 83 Lanes Opening

Rollins Road Gateway Construction


Next week, the contractor will be opening new lanes to traffic for northbound IL 83. The date is set for Wednesday, 7/1/15, weather pending. Northbound IL 83 will be shifted east onto the new pavement. Rollins traffic will be pushed outside to the new curbs, so work on the center median east of IL 83 can be completed. Hainesville traffic will also be shifted onto the new pavement.

For now, IL 83 will remain in one lane in each direction. That will give the contractor a chance to complete work on the IL 83 median south of Rollins Road and finish the sidewalk and topsoil along the east side of IL 83.

The contractor will continue work on installing the traffic signals. The signals at Rollins Road and Mallard Creek Drive will be the first to be completed. We expect it will take a few weeks to finish.

In the meantime, the contractor will be placing the asphalt and remaining curb necessary for the traffic switch. They will also be placing another portion of the new parking lot south of Rollins Road.
