Traffic signal upgrades planned for 18 intersections


Evanston's City Council is scheduled to vote tonight to approve a plan to upgrade traffic signals at 18 intersections with energy-saving light-emitting-diode devices.

The project will cover state highways in the city, including Central and Dempster streets, Crawford Avenue and Golf Road.

The project is expected to cost $571,000. The state will pick up most of the tab, with the city having to kick in about 5 percent of the funds.
