Several road construction projects in Evanston — including resurfacing Crawford Avenue — are scheduled to start the  week of July 9.

Crawford from Golf to Gross Point roads will be resurfaced by contractors working for the state Department of Transportation.

This project involves curb replacement, as needed; roadway base repair; replacement of asphalt surface from curb to curb; and roadway striping.

The city will also start work replacing water mains and repairing three streets. They are:

  • Ashland Avenue from Lincoln to Central streets.
  • Greenleaf Street from Grey to Dodge avenues.
  • Elmwood Avenue from Oakton Street to South Boulevard.

This project includes the replacement of the existing deteriorated water main with new ductile iron pipe, along with the replacement of the existing water services. The street resurfacing portion of the project involves curb replacement, as needed; roadway base repair; asphalt surface patching; and the selected replacement of sidewalks and driveway aprons.

In addition Oak Avenue from Dempster Street south to the dead end will be resurfaced, but won’t have water mains replaced.

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

Construction zone daytime no parking restrictions will be intermittent throughout the duration of the project. Evening and nighttime parking, 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 around the construction zone when temporary daytime no parking is in effect.

  1. Ashland—Central to Isabella

    I'm surprised they stopped the work at Central.  The concrete from Central to Isabella is terrible and it appears has not been touched in years.  Think of what all the people coming to the stadium must think of that stretch.

    To say nothing about all the resident'scars that have to travel it every day.
