The contractor will be completing construction activities on west side of Chicago Avenue including pedestrian ramps, concrete work, traffic signal foundations this week.

The traffic signal controller upgrade at Davis Street & Chicago Avenue is planned for Thursday April 27 . This intersection will operate as a stop sign controlled intersection from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accommodate the replacement of signal controller. A traffic officer from EPD will be stationed at Chicago/Davis while the signal control work is being completed.

In September 2016, the City Council directed the Parks and Recreation Board and the Lighthouse Landing Complex Committee to develop a plan for the future operation of the Harley Clarke property. Since November, a planning committee comprised of members of these two groups has been meeting monthly with interested residents to discuss proposals for the property. The committee has focused in particular on the proposal for an environmental education center developed by Evanston Lakehouse and Gardens.
Plan to join us on Wednesday, April 26, 7 – 9 p.m., in the Parasol Room, 4th floor, Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., for a presentation about the proposed environmental education center and the financial plan behind it — and share your thoughts about this important community asset.
