Portions of four Evanston streets — Lee, Grey, Marcy and Hovland — will be torn up to replace water mains and do street repair work over the next dozen weeks.

Deteriorated water mains will be replaced with new ductile iron pipe and water service connections to homes will be replaced.

The street resurfacing involves curb replacement as needed, roadway base repair, replacement of asphalt surface from curb to curb, along with selected sidewalk replacement and driveway aprons.

Money for the water main work comes from the city’s water fund. The other work is funded by general opblication bonds. There will be no direct charge to the property owners for the work..

The work will start the week of May 2nd on Lee Street from McDaniel to Pitner avenues, followed by Grey Avenue from Church to Emerson Streets, Marcy Avenue from Grant to Colfax streets and Hovland Court from Church to Emerson streets.

The project is expected to be completed by early August.

Temporary no parking signs will be posted 48 hours before the start of work on each street section.

The construction activities will create some inconvenience for the abutting residents. The street sweeping and/or neighborhood parking restrictions will be waived for a one block radius of the construction zone.

The contractor for this street improvement program is A. Lamp Concrete Contractors, Inc., located at 800 W. Irving Park Road in Schaumburg, IL 60193.

The project is under the supervision of the City of Evanston’s Division of Transportation. The Resident Engineers in the field will be Angeleo Alonzo 847/980-3402.
