  • Foster Street from Dodge Avenue to Dewey Avenue.
  • Greenwood Street from Maple Avenue to Sherman Avenue.
  • Grove Street from Chicago Avenue to Judson Avenue.
  • Hinman Avenue from Greenleaf Street to Dempster Street.
  • Madison Street from Ridge Avenue to Custer Avenue.
  • Sheridan Place for its full length.

Contracts for the work are expected to be awarded in April with construction to begin in May.
