A contractor for the city will start tearing up Sherman Avenue from Davis to Church streets in Evanston on April 1 to replace a water main and make other improvements.
The project, funded by the Washington National TIF, is expected to be completed by the end of May.
Streetscape work on the east side of Sherman Avenue will include replacing the existing pavers with a new concrete sidewalk and a brick border, installing new roadway curbing as needed, and replacing the existing tree grates. The project will also involve repaving the street.
Sherman Avenue will remain open during construction. There will be no parking on the east side of Sherman Avenue during this project, and there will be impacts to parking on the west side intermittently.
City officals say construction activities will create some inconveniences for the abutting businesses and residents, but workers will attempt to minimize these issues.
The contractor for this project is Landmark Contractors, Inc., located at 11916 W. Main St., in Huntley, Illinois.
The City has retained Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd. to monitor the project. For questions or concerns during construction, please contact Resident Engineer Kevin Wilson, P.E., at 847-833-0274. Questions in general about the Sherman Avenue project should be directed to Sat Nagar, P.E., Senior Project Manager, at 3-1-1 or 847-448-4311.
