The City of Evanston will be refreshing pavement markings in the 2016 program area beginning the week of July 11. The work is expected to take two weeks to complete, weather permitting. A map of locations is attached.

Drivers should expect short delays in specific work zones as flaggers route traffic around the work crews. Parking restrictions will be short in duration and specific to each work area. The work in each location will typically take one hour or less to complete.

This project will recoat the existing pavement markings with a new layer of thermoplastic marking material. Thermoplastic is a plastic polymer material that liquefies when heated and is commonly used for pavement markings. Thermoplastic cools quickly once applied and has a 5-7 year life expectance. After the contractor finishes the marking, the street will be immediately ready for traffic.

The work will refresh crosswalks, center lines, stop bars and speed bumps. Funding for this project is from the City’s Capital Improvement 2016 bond issue.
