Davis St. Water Main/Sewer Project Update
Contractors for the City of Evanston have been performing water main and sewer replacement work on Davis Street to replace the existing water main with a new 24" ductile iron pipe. Here’s an update on progress completed and the timeline for future projects.
The new water main and sewer installation, including the services to various buildings, is complete on Davis Street. The asphalt final surface from Ridge to Benson was completed on October 29, 2013 The contractor will be completing the streetscape/sidewalk work on Davis Street the week of November 1, 2013.
Due to dips and fluctuations in temperature, the following work has been deferred until June 2014: installation of the porous concrete parking lane between Benson and Hinman, protected bike lane/delineators and final striping of the roadway. This work will take place after the conclusion of Northwestern University’s spring quarter. The temporary pavement markings will be completed with paint after the final asphalt surface.
