50/50 Sidewalk Improvement Program

Streets are maintained by the city, but the repair and replacement of damaged sidewalk slabs are the responsibility of the homeowner or business whose property is adjacent to the sidewalk. To help with that responsibility, the City of Evanston offers property owners the opportunity to improve the appearance and safety of their homes and neighborhoods with the 50/50 Sidewalk Replacement Program.

Alley Improvements

The City of Evanston has 70 miles of alley.  Approximately 30 miles are unimproved and do not have a drainage system.  The City has a program to improve alleys in which the cost is shared 50/50 with the residents.

Alley Lighting Petition

Residents can petition for approval to have Alley Lighting through ComEd installed in their alley.

Neighborhood Traffic Calming

The bureau operates a Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program which places traffic circles, speed humps, speed bumps and other devices which reduce the speed and volume of traffic in the neighborhoods. Additional information on this program will be made available shortly.

Sign Requests

The City's traffic engineer evaluates locations for new stop signs and other types of signs to address specific traffic concerns. Please contact 311 to submit a sign request.
