Entire lower Burlington Lot to close for weekend work
NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Scheduled maintenance will close the entire Lower Burlington commuter parking lot near the Naperville Metra Station the weekend of June 16 and 17 while work is being performed as part of the City’s Municipal Parking Lot Improvement Project.
The lot will be closed to all public parking, including those with Amtrak parking permits for the Lower Burlington lot. Amtrak patrons seeking parking for the weekend of June 16 and 17 are advised to use the nearby Upper Burlington parking lot. All other motorists are encouraged to utilize alternate parking; a map of commuter parking options is available on the City’s website at www.naperville.il.us/commuterparking.aspx. All areas under construction will be reopened the Monday morning following the weekend work.
In addition, concrete sidewalk and curb repairs will continue to be performed at the Naperville Metra Station. Concrete work will be performed in the Lower Burlington and Kroehler parking lots as well as around the station platform.
Repaving will also continue June 16 and 17 in the Route 59 Metra Station parking lot that is located north of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. The work will occur on the east side of Fairway Drive and in the main drive aisles on the west side of Fairway Drive. Motorists are encouraged to park in the southwest corner of the lot over the weekend. The Route 59 lot is being repaved in sections every weekend in June, weather permitting, and the most updated map showing the areas that will be closed each weekend is located at www.naperville.il.us/commuterparking.aspx.
Pedestrian access to the train stations is not anticipated to be affected nor will the Metra schedules or stations be impacted by the construction. All construction is weather dependent; notice of schedule changes as well as more information about the project will be posted to the City’s website at www.naperville.il.us/commuterparking.aspx, in the City’s Commuter Connection eNewsletter, in the local media when possible and in both train stations prior to and during construction.
The Municipal Parking Lot Improvement Project includes maintenance work at 20 City-owned parking lots that range from minor work such as sidewalk replacement, curb and gutter replacement and patching to major repair work such as resurfacing and seal coating.
The parking lots are located throughout Naperville and include seven fire stations, four downtown lots, six commuter lots, the Naperville Police Department, Electric Service Center and Springbrook Water Reclamation Center.
Construction on all lots is slated for completion by October 2012.
