Work to complete the Davis Street improvement project in downtown Evanston is scheduled to resume Monday.

City officials say it will take about six weeks to wrap up the work -- adding pavement markings, including for the protected bike lane from Ridge to Hinman avenues.

The work will require intermittent daytime no parking restrictions, but evening and night time parking will be available, except on a few nights.

Adequate alternative parking options are expected to be available on nearby streets and in the city's downtown parking garages.
