Central Avenue

About This Project

Village of Wilmette

$9.5 million

The reconstruction and enhancement of historic downtown Wilmette reconstructed Central Avenue from Green Bay Road to Sheridan Road while adding decorative lighting, sidewalks, traffic signals, roadway pavements, wayfinding signs, seating and plantings in the heart of the Central Business District of Wilmette. Interpersonal contact between BLA staff, the Village of Wilmette, business owners and residents was essential to the success of the project.
