Rollins Road Paving Begins

Rollins Road Gateway Construction


The contractor is preparing to pave new Rollins Road between Hainesville and the shopping centers during the first week of September. The through-lanes will be placed first, followed by the turn-lanes (which will take several days to complete), corner pieces, and any other miscellaneous sections. After that, new curb will go in and the new pavement will be ready for traffic sometime around the third week of September.

Once traffic is moved to the new Rollins pavement, there will be no turns allowed between IL Rte. 83 and Rollins Road because IL Rte. 83 will still be running on the temporary bridge over Rollins Road. Both roads will remain open for that period. A retaining wall must be constructed to allow the west half of IL Rte. 83 to be built. Part of this retaining wall is under temporary Rollins Road, so it cannot be built until traffic is switched and the temporary road removed. This work and the subsequent paving should take about 6-8 weeks to complete.

The sewer contractor will be placing new water main and sanitary sewer on the north leg of IL Rte. 83 in the next week. They will then begin placing storm sewer from Hook Drive to the south.

We are still waiting for ComEd to complete the relocation of a power pole that is in the way on the north leg of IL Rte. 83. We are hoping it will be gone by the time the sewer crew makes their way to it.

There are a handful of concrete pours to finish up the last of the railroad abutments. They should be completed in mid-September.
