3 years after it opened, final payment closes book on Rollins Gateway project

Three years ago, a major traffic snag in north central Lake County was untangled with the opening of the Rollins Gateway project in Round Lake Beach.

But it wasn’t until recently the most expensive and complicated road project undertaken by the Lake County Division of Transportation was considered complete.

That happened Sept. 11 when the Lake County Board authorized spending $2.7 million as the final payment to complete acquisition of 49 parcels, including homes and businesses, for the right of way needed.

Altogether, land acquisition from shopping centers, businesses, investment properties, homeowners and others accounted for $21.9 million of the total $71.5 million project cost.
