Road closure changes are needed for Lift Station No. 10 Upgrades at Lake Sybelia Drive and Hillman Avenue. In addition to the existing Lake Sybelia Drive road closure (east of the Lake Sybelia Drive/Hillman Avenue intersection), the intersection of Lake Sybelia Drive and Hillman Ave will also need to be closed starting 8:00 a.m. Monday, February 22, 2016, for approximately one week. The intersection road closure at Lake Sybelia Drive and Hillman Avenue will be necessary to allow for the delivery and installation of large lift station structures and the mobilization and use of a crane within the roadway. While the road is excavated and construction is active, the road closure will be continuous (day and night).
When construction methods and safety allows, the intersection closure will be removed, yet the existing road closure on Lake Sybelia Drive, east of Hillman Avenue, will remain as a continuous road closure throughout the construction of Lift Station No. 10 Upgrades. As the construction requires, there will be additional and intermittent intersection closures throughout the duration of the lift station upgrades. The construction of the lift station upgrades is expected to take approximately 6-months.
Police and Fire, please consider this location of the road closure when answering emergency calls. There will be no vehicle access through the closure due to the road being excavated with utility equipment, vehicles and work crews within the roadway.
Although all of the private driveways will remain accessible, it will be important to approach the location of the emergency from the correct side of Lake Sybelia Drive so as not to be blocked off from access due to the road closure. Please see attached MOT plans with detour routes, and note that when the intersection closure is in place, Lake Sybelia Drive will not be accessible by way of Hillman Avenue and Hillman Avenue will not be accessible by way of Lake Sybelia Drive. Please see the attached Maintenance of Traffic Plans for the road and intersection closures.

What? Lift Station No. 10 was built in 1967. This station is a wet well/dry well type of lift station that receives effluent from five other lift stations within the system. It serves a portion of the west side of the City. The station has sustained deterioration due to its age and rehabilitation is needed. Also, a bigger wet well is needed to accommodate larger pumps.
When? Construction is anticipated to begin on Monday, February 8, 2016. The duration of the entire project is approximately four months.
Why: Lift Station No. 10 is 49 years old. Its pumps and control panel are old and unable to operate at peak performance. Additionally, the project has been in the pipeline for a while. The City included this project in the 2005 and 2013 Sewer System Master Plan. Planning for the project began in the 2003 Capital Improvements Program.
Who? On December 14 2015, the City Council awarded a contract to Villages Construction, Inc. to perform the work for the Lift Station No. 10 Rehabilitation Project. Villages Construction plans to reach out to residents with door notices. Vilages Construction's phone number is 354-314-3625 and Public Works Department's phone number is 407-539-6252.
Where? Lift Station No. 10 is located at 600 N. Lake Sybelia Drive at the intersection of Hillman Avenue and N. Lake Sybelia Drive. The road closure to through traffic will begin at 600 N. Lake Sybelia Drive and extend northeast for about 200 feet along N. Lake Sybelia Drive. It will be open to local traffic only.
