Work to resurface Dodge Avenue from Oakton to Lee streets is scheduled to start June 6.

The project will involve replacing curbs, repairing the roadway base and replacing the asphalt surface from curb to curb as well as selectively replacing sidewalks and driveway aprons. Accessible ramps will also be built at intersections.

Funding for the project comes from the City’s Motor Fuel Tax Fund and General Obligation Bond Fund. There’s no direct charge to adjacent property owners.

The work is expected to be finished by the first week of August.

Construction dates for each section of roadway will be noted on temporary no parking signs posted 48 hours before the start of work.

Construction zone daytime parking restrictions will be intermittent during the project. Evening and night time parking from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. will always be available.

Street sweeping and/or neighborhood parking restrictions will be waived for a one block radius of the construction zone when temporary daytime no parking rules is in effect. The construction activities will create some inconvenience for the adjoining residents, but workers will attempt to minimize these problems.

The project is under the supervision of the City of Evanston’s Division of Transportation. The resident engineer in the field will be Pankaj Chokshi who be directly responsible for all aspects of the construction. He can be reached at 3-1-1 or 847-448- 4311.

Questions about street resurfacing projects in general should be directed to Senior Engineer Sat Nagar, at 3-1-1 or 847-448- 4311.

Lawn sprinkler system should be identified and marked with a flag by the property owner prior to the start of construction to prevent damage.
