The Lake County Department of Public Works will be repairing
a 30-inch diameter underground pipe in Ingleside that carries waste water from
the East Main Pump Station, through a larger system of underground pipes, that
eventually ends at the Fox Lake Treatment Plant. This concrete pipe was
originally constructed in 1979 and needs repair due to deterioration in three
locations. The repairs will ensure that no leaks or breaks will occur in the
pipe that would allow waste water to leak out into the environment. This work
will require a road closure at Larkin Lane between Wilson Road and Catherine
Street for approximately one week. Following this temporary road closure, there
will be a closure of the northbound lane only on Wilson Road north of Larkin
for approximately four weeks. Northbound Wilson will be detoured at Route 134.
The nature of this work is extremely weather dependent and
therefore the dates and times of the road closures may be delayed or
rescheduled. Please visit the Public Works website for the most current
information about this project, and use Lake County PASSAGE for local traffic

Northbound Wilson Road Detour Route: East on IL
134, north on Fairfield Road, and west on Rollins Road. Southbound traffic will remain
