Milwaukee Avenue and Waukegan Road Street Lighting Replacement
New street light poles and fixtures are being installed on Milwaukee Avenue from Albion Avenue to Greenwood Avenue, and on Waukegan Road from Milwaukee Avenue to Main Street.
Final pole installations and punch list items are underway and will continue throughout the summer. Weather permitting, the project is scheduled for a October, 2022 completion. This project installed a total of 370 light poles and 76,000 linear feet of fiber optic conduit.
Howard Street Improvements
The work on Howard Street is nearing its full completion with only punch list items and restoration still scheduled. Howard Street received a much needed overhaul from Milwaukee Avenue to Lehigh Avenue. Aspects of improvement include water main, utilities, storm sewer, street resurfacing, major safety improvements, bike lanes, lighting, and more. Thank you to all those that have participated in the improvement project, Howard Street Commuters, and most or all our Niles residents.
