Daily Herald staff report

After closing Busse Road just south of Algonquin Road in Mount Prospect for a couple of weeks last April for an emergency repair of a collapsed sewer, work crews once again have closed some lanes since Monday for follow-up repairs.

The cement pipe regional sewer line, which serves parts of Arlington Heights, Des Plaines and Mount Prospect, is three feet in diameter and 23 feet below the road. The initial problem was discovered last spring during a routine inspection by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, spokeswoman Allison Fore said.

At that time, MWRD made a spot repair, and now it is making a permanent repair, putting a cured-in-place pipe lining in the sewer in two insertions. That work, which avoids digging a trench to replace the pipe, will be completed this week. The final stage of the project involves the rehabilitation of four manholes; this should take approximately two weeks.

The project will cost approximately $385,000.

Last spring's repairs, which involved tearing up the road, created extensive traffic backups. The work was further complicated when heavy rains deluged the area.
