More street work planned in Evanston

As soon as folks get back from the Labor Day holiday, and the kids go back to school, the City of Evanston will start work on nine resurfacing projects on streets throughout the community.

This project involves curb replacements, as needed; roadway base repair; replacement of asphalt surface from curb to curb; and selected sidewalk and driveway apron replacements.

The road work is part of the city’s continuous program to improve the road system throughout the community.

The funding for the project will be from the capital improvement funds and there will be no direct charge to the property owners on these streets, according to the city.

Here are the streets slated for the work:

1. Pitner Avenue (Lee Street to Greenleaf Street)

2. Dewey Avenue (Kirk Street to Oakton Street)

3. Brummel Street (Elmwood Avenue to Ridge Avenue)

4. Elmwood Avenue (Lee Street to Crain Street)

5. Milburn Street (Ridge Avenue to Orrington Avenue)

6. Asbury Avenue (Central Street to Chancellor Street)

7. Jenks Street (Eastwood Avenue to dead end east)

8. Hartrey Avenue (Lincoln Street to Central Street)

9. Bennett Avenue (Simpson Street to Payne Street)

The construction will begin on September 4 on several of the street segments, with the entire project expected to be fully completed by mid-October, the city said.
