Snow cleanup not done yet


Four days after the blizzard, Evanston city crews are still working to clean up after the storm that dumped more than 20 inches of snow on the city.

Assistant Public Works Director James Maiworm says cleanup efforts today will focus on moving and hauling snow from corners, crosswalks, bridge decks and under viaducts to improve access and visibility, hauling snow from parking lots to increase the number of usable parking spaces and touching up sidewalks to widen walkways.

Tonight crews will focus on cleaning up business districts on Dempster Street and downtown.

Overnight crews cleaned up and hauled snow from several business districts, including Noyes and Central streets and on Benson Avenue and Chruch and Clark streets downtown and at the intersection of Sherman Avenue and Elgin Road.

The crews also cleared piles of snow on Custer Avenue and cleared the parking deck at the municipal service center.
