From our good friend, Wendy Tannenbaum, President North Avenue Business Association.
IDOT Harlem Avenue resurfacing project:
The contractor will be grinding the asphalt and placing binder south of I 290 the week of May 21st – 25th. They anticipate grinding and placing binder between I 290 and North Avenue the week of June 4th. There will likely be minor curb and sidewalk replacement for the entire Oak Park stretch starting next week and lasting until the end of the month.
IDOT North Avenue resurfacing project (Elmwood to Ridgeland & Austin to Central):
The contractor just recently received permits and has just started to work on this project again. They are currently removing manhole frames in the pavement so they can grind the street. Next week the contractor will be removing and replacing sections of concrete curb and sidewalks. The contractor anticipates grinding the pavement and replacing binder following the concrete work, approximately the week of May 28th. The majority of the work will be done east of Austin Avenue to Central and there will be a two block section of construction between Elmwood and Ridgeland.
Thanks to Wendy for all her hard work and for keeping us up to date on the goings on up around North Avenue. As Wendy says, “Take your business in a new direction. Go NORTH! Join the North Avenue Business Association. Stay Informed. Get Connected. And support the North Avenue Business District.“
