Because bad weather set them back a bit at the start of the month, contractors on Evanston’s Robert Crown Community Center, Ice Complex, and Library Project, at Main Street and Dodge Avenue, are planning to work tomorrow, according to the regular weekly update on the project from the city.

Last week, contractors completed construction of the trailer setup, began clearing and stripping the site of topsoil, commenced construction of the building pad, and did some temporary site utilities work.

In the coming week, they plan to continue cleaning and stripping the site of topsoil, continue construction of the building pad, and continue temporary site utilities work.

You can keep up with construction plans by visiting the project website.

Next Friday, Sept. 28, they are inviting the public to stop by the construction trailer at 7:30 a.m. for a community meeting with the construction manager to discuss progress, forecast of upcoming work, construction traffic ,and any questions that you might have about the $53 million project.
