City of Rockford - Lincoln; Maple; and Courtland Street Improvements

Important Information

This project will replace water, wastewater, and stormwater utilities with a complete reconstruct of streets and sidewalk along portions of Maple, Lincoln and Courtland Streets.

Access/Traffic Control

Access to driveways within the project area will be maintained to the extent possible. When the underground utility work is happening, driveways will be closed and restored with temporary road gravel by the end of the work day. Permanent driveway restoration, such as pouring concrete, will require additional driveway closures at the end of the project.  Please contact the contractor listed below if you have a special need for driveway access accommodations during these periods.


To facilitate mail service, CL Trucking will coordinate with you and the Post Office and may temporarily relocate your mailbox to a central location.

Garbage Pick-up

Normal trash pickup schedules will continue. When construction work hinders access, CL Trucking will transport trash containers to an accessible location and return them to the property.

Water Service

Water system operation will continue throughout the project, but temporary water shut offs will be needed at various times throughout the project.

Properties with lead or galvanized water services will have their water service line replaced from the main into the building. Such properties will receive separate notice at a later date.

Wastewater Service Connection

Property owners will receive new sanitary sewer lateral piping from the roadway to the right of way line.
