Repairs at Wheaton Parking Garages to Close Some Spaces

WHEATON, Ill. - Crews will be completing repairs on the City’s Wheaton Place (232 W. Wesley St.) and Willow Avenue (220 S. Cross St.) parking garages starting the week of Aug. 7, 2017. Most of the work will be at the Willow Avenue garage. The City estimates crews will complete this project by the end of September.

In order for crews to complete this work, the City will be closing various parking spaces throughout the garages. A limited number of parking spaces will be closed at a time to ensure permit holders have adequate parking.

Permit holders may not use customer-only parking spaces during construction. Customer-only parking will remain available only for customers of downtown businesses.

This work is part of recommended repairs to ensure the facilities are structurally sound and safe for public use. The City has a structural expert evaluate both parking garages every five years and make recommendations for repairs and upkeep.
