Tuscarora Trail Closure

Construction of the Dommerich Hills Phase 1 municipal sewer expansion will begin as early as Monday, Nov. 1, with pipeline installation and preliminary site development for a new lift station that will require the closure of pedestrian sidewalks and roadway along part of Tuscarora Trail.

A section of Tuscarora Trail between Nicoma Trail and Huron Trail will be closed to vehicle thru-traffic, which will be detoured north along Kewannee Trail, Mohawk Trail, Chippewa Trail and Nicoma Trail. Local traffic access will be maintained for homeowners within the closure on Tuscarora Trail, Lightning Trail and Ponca Trail (south of Tuscarora).

The sidewalk along the south side of Tuscarora will close from Nicoma Trail to Huron Trail, prohibiting access for pedestrians and cyclists. Signs will mark the vehicle detour and sidewalk closure. For questions and requests regarding the sidewalk closure, please call (407) 539-6223 or e-mail to rsargent@itsmymaitland.com. 


The closure along this section of Tuscarora is expected until Jan. 31, 2022. Phase 1 construction, which includes the new sewer lift station and expanded pipeline providing service to about 90 homes, will take about 18 months to complete.

Preliminary work will begin for the sewer lift station on the south side of Tuscarora and east of Nicoma. Within the next few weeks, residents will see some site clearing and a large pile of dirt. Measurement tools will be installed around the lift station area. Sewer main and lateral connections will be installed under the street along Tuscarora.

Residents within the Tuscarora road closure should follow these steps during construction:

  • Vehicle access will be maintained for each home unless notified later by the city.
  • Project workers will relocate residential garbage and recycling containers outside of the construction area on Mondays and Thursdays, returning containers to the appropriate homes after waste collection each day. Containers should be placed at the curb by 7:30 a.m. Mondays and Thursdays to ensure collection.
  • Yard waste is collected on Wednesdays. To ensure pickup, please notify the city in advance at (407) 539-6265.
  • Mail and doorstep deliveries will be permitted without interruption.
  • Sewer pipeline lateral connections will be installed within the public right-of-way of residential properties only along Tuscarora. Sewer service to these properties will be available toward the end of the 18-month project period.

 Residents with questions about the pipeline connections or future sewer service can visit www.maitlandutilities.com or call (407) 539-6223.
