For the next three weeks, the City of Evanston will be resurfacing parts of Lyons, Lee, and Washington streets.

This project involves curb replacement, as needed; roadway base repair; replacement of the asphalt surface from curb to curb; and selected sidewalk replacement and driveway aprons. Any sprinkler systems should be identified and marked with a flag by the property owner prior to the start of construction to prevent damages to the sprinkler system.

Construction was scheduled to begin Monday on Lyons Street from Dodge Avenue east to the point where it dead ends. Then the work moves on to Lee Street, from Hinman Avenue to Judson Avenue, followed by Washington Street, from Asbury Avenue to Ridge Avenue.

The actual date when construction is planned for each street will be noted on temporary “No Parking” signs posted 48 hours prior to the start of work. The construction activities will create some inconveniences for abutting residents, but the city assures residents that workers will attempt to minimize these problems.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of the month.
