Restricted Parking, Water Main Work Begins Monday

Crews will replace water mains and resurface streets in several neighborhoods.

Beginning Monday, July 9, construction crews will be replacing water mains and resurfacing streets around Evanston.

Through the end of August, crews from the Wauconda-based firm Glenbrook Excavating & Concrete will replace old, deteriorating water mains with new iron pipes and resurface streets, replace curbs, patch asphalt and replace some sidewalks. The work is being completed as part of the city's annual water main replacement and street resurfacing, at a total cost of about $3 million this year.

Four neighborhoods will be affected by work on this portion of the project, including parts of Ashland Avenue, Greenleaf Street, Elmwood Avenue and Oak Avenue, according to a press release from the city. 

Construction dates will be noted on temporary “NO PARKING” signs in each of the affected neighborhoods 48 hours before work begins. Daytime parking restrictions will be in effect, while evening and nighttime parking will remain available, according to the release. Street sweeping and other neighborhood parking restrictions will be waived in a one-block radius for the duration of the project.

The streets affected are as follows:

1. Ashland Avenue (Lincoln Street to Central Street)
2. Greenleaf Street (Grey Avenue to Dodge Avenue)
3. Elmwood Avenue (Oakton Street to South Boulevard)
4. Oak Avenue (Dempster Street to dead end south) – street resurfacing only
