Road Closures - East Side Sewer Relief Project


The Village of Mt. Zion’s contractor for the East Side Sewer Relief Project has notified us that they plan to start the project on August 14, 2023.  Due to the tight constraints of the area, the contractor will have to close certain portions of the roadway to allow enough space for them to work.  These roads will be closed to all thru traffic for approximately 3 weeks.  Click HERE to see a screenshot of the highlighted closed portions of Bell Street, Bell Court, and Sunset Drive.  The contractor will make accommodations for the impacted property owners to gain access to their homes during the closure, but thru traffic will not be allowed.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Village Hall at 217-864-5424.
