Cuba Road Closure Update (10-02-15): Emergency Lane Closing Of Cuba Road Between S. Krueger Road and Old McHenry Road.  Lake Zurich anticipates the closure of Cuba Road during the week of October 5, 2015.  The emergency replacement of the failed sanitary sewer is expected to be completed with Cuba Road re-opening to traffic by the end of November.  

Lake Zurich Public Works - Cuba Road Closure/Sanitary Sewer Update - 10/02/2015  

Long Grove Staff and Village Engineer are in daily communications with the Lake Zurich Public Works/Engineering Departments relaying concerns of impact on the neighboring residents (odor, access, etc.) and coordination of efforts to minimize the impact on the surrounding area and traveling public.  Long Grove Village President Angie Underwood has been in communication with Lake Zurich Mayor Tom Poyton sharing these concerns as well.  Lake Zurich is implementing efforts to minimize odors today and coordinating construction and detour routes expected to begin next week.  The project is expected to take up to 6 weeks to complete.  Further updates will be posted as they are become available.

Lake Zurich Public Works - Cuba Road Closure/Sanitary Sewer Update - 09/25/2015  

The Lake Zurich Public Works staff has been working with Berger Excavating and Manhard Consulting to finalize the plan to replace the section of 30”-36” gravity sewer under E. Cuba Road near Old McHenry Road.  A televising contractor was brought on site during the week of 9/21 to televise the section of pipe downstream of the collapse to determine whether that pipe experienced further damage.  It is apparent that, while the pipe is still in operation, it has deteriorated to a point where lining is not recommended. Accordingly, staff has requested an update to Berger Excavating’s proposal to include replacement of an additional 300 feet of pipe which extends underneath Old McHenry Road.  We currently anticipate that the pipe replacement, bypass pumping, and traffic detour plans will be finalized next week with an expected start date the week of October 5.  Setup and construction will take approximately 6 weeks with pavement and landscape restoration to follow. One lane of traffic will remain open on E. Cuba Road at this time. 

Diamond Lake Road Closure Update (10-01-15)Emergency Closing Of Diamond Lake Road Between Gilmer & Indian Creek Road.  Lake County anticipates the road re-opening of Diamond Lake Road by the end of October.  

Lake County Department Of Transportation - Diamond Lake Closure Update - 10/01/2015

Being an emergency project with less than the usual amount of planning going into this project, Lake County DOT reports that they have had some difficulties along the way.  The latest estimate from the contractor is for Diamond Lake Road to re-opened to traffic by the end of October.  The contractor removed the culvert and bean excavation work began in September only to have the creek diversion overtopped by the large amount of rain 3-4” that fell between Sept. 17 & 19.  The flooding required that the work be halted until the creek level receded.  The contractor has since dewatered and excavated the site again.  During excavation, the contractor discovered some old concrete foundations below the surface that weren't previously known of and required extra time to jackhammer out to complete the excavation work.

The concrete contractor is installing the first of the two foundations with reinforcing steel.  It will take some time for the contractor to form, pour the concrete and then let the concrete get up to strength.  Once the concrete foundations have set, the contractor will be setting the precast concrete sections on the foundations with a crane, then backfilling the area in preparation for placing the replacement pavement.  After Diamond Lake Road is reopened to traffic, the non-road items will be completed  (guardrail & landscaping).  With some help from mother nature, the contractor is making good progress again and anticipating having Diamond Lake Rd opened around Halloween.  Updates are available through the following link to the Lake County Division Of Transportation (click here)
