For nearly two years, a Cook County-led construction project has forced drivers, local residents, and the nearby Lincolnwood School District 74 community to muster up extra patience as crews tore up the roadway and ripped up sidewalks along busy Crawford Avenue.
The total reconstruction of a mile and a half stretch of Crawford Avenue from Howard Street in Skokie to Devon Avenue in Lincolnwood is expected to wrap-up this by the end of this year, according to Andrew Letson, assistant to the Lincolnwood Public Works director.
The major aspects of the project are scheduled to be completed by the end of August, but crews will continue landscaping and restoring medians and parkways through the fall and spring.
The two-lane traffic pattern that has diverted motorists traveling in both directions to the east side of the street this year will continue through the duration of the project.
