ComEd is working closely with the City of Evanston to ensure electric reliability in the area. During recent emergent trouble, ComEd identified portions of underground cable serving Evanston and Northwestern University that need repairs and enhancements.  In order to address this, ComEd crews will be completing the necessary upgrades along Dodge Avenue between Oakton and Greenleaf Streets between Monday, May 20, and Friday, May 24.  

Northbound and southbound traffic will remain open on Dodge Ave., but there will be a daily lane shift. Daily construction will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end by 3:30 p.m.  “No Parking” signs will be posted along portions of Dodge Ave. between Oakton St. and Greenleaf St. and all required signage will be in place to properly direct traffic patterns. Please use extreme caution when entering this area from either the north or south as there will be workers and equipment present in the street.
