A three-month-long road work project is scheduled for Isabella Street on the Evanston-Wilmette border starting Feb. 25.

The work will affect the section of the street between Highland and Ewing avenues.

The project includes installation of a relief sewer, concrete repairs to curbs, roadway base repair, asphalt resurfacing and selected sidewalk and driveway apron replacements. It’s expected to be completed by the end of May.

Street sweeping and neighborhood parking restrictions will be waived for a one-block radius around the construction zone when temporary daytime no parking restrictions are in effect.

Property owners are asked to mark sprinkler systems in the parkway with a flag before construction starts to prevent damage.

Sewer construction will require road closures on Isabella. Two blocks will be closed at a time until the sewer work is complete. Residents will be notified in advance of driveway closures required by the project.

The contractor for this street improvement program is Berger Excavating of Wauconda.

The project is under the supervision of Village of Wilmette’s Engineering Division. The resident engineer in the field will be Dan Manis, who will be directly responsible for all aspects of the construction. Questions or concerns can be directed to him at 847-331- 0560 or 847-853-7621.
