Chicago Avenue/Sheridan Road Project

Chicago Avenue/Sheridan Road Project Phase 1 Begins March 27

The City of Evanston will begin Phase 1 of the Chicago Avenue/Sheridan Road Corridor Improvement Project on Monday, March 27. Phase 1 includes improvements on Chicago Avenue, from Grove Street to Sheridan Road.

What does this mean for my wedding and how will impact me/my guests?

  • Traffic between Chicago Ave and Sheridan Road going North/South will be limited or detoured to the east or west.
  • Guests should be directed to enter off of Clark Street at the alleyway/parking lot entrance south of our building.
  • Guests can park in any parking spots labeled “Northwestern Faculty/Staff” to the south of the building.
  • Street parking along Chicago, next to Millar Chapel, will no longer be an option but parking will still be available on Hinman and Clark Streets.
  • There is also an Evanston city garage at the corner of Clark and Chicago available for a small daily fee.
  • Pick-up and drop-off can still occur at this time along the alleyway to the east of the building so long as the driver exits onto Sheridan going east.
