TODAY: North Garage Maintenance Work Begins May 2, No Daily Fee Spaces for Duration of Project

Necessary maintenance work for the North Garage, located at the northwest corner of Miner Street and Arlington Heights Road, will begin May 2 and is expected to be completed by early August. This maintenance work is part of a "Parking Garage Rehabilitation Program" approved by the Village Board for Village-owned Parking Garages.

During this project, there will be NO Daily Fee parking spaces available in the North Garage. There will be limited permit parking available in the garage that will be on a first-come, first-serve basis in order to best accommodate merchant parking, Downtown residents, commuters, and shoppers.

The maintenance work being done to the North Garage and all Village-owned garages will eliminate deficiencies in the structures, which, if left unchecked, could lead to future, more extensive and costly repairs. This work will be phased in at various times over the next few years, which will result in improving the structural integrity of the Village's garages.

During the work in the North Garage, ALL permit users (residents, merchants, and commuters) will still be allowed to utilize the garage. However, since the project will affect all floors -- one quarter of two floors will be closed at a time with available parking being made on the 4th floor, parking spaces will be limited.

Due to the fluidity of the necessary construction, locations of available parking spaces in the North Garage will be changing on a daily basis. Since there will be no Daily Fee parking in the garage, permit users will be allowed to utilize the 4th floor (top deck) at various times during construction.

Informational and directional signs will be placed in the North Garage to assist parkers. For the duration of this project, please allow additional time in locating available parking. Refer to the parking map for locations of other garages and parking lots.

· Municipal Garage (adjacent to Village Hall)
· Lot O (across from Village Hall; southeast corner of Sigwalt St and Arlington Heights Rd)
· Vail Garage (Vail Avenue and Campbell Street, south of Metropolis)
· Arlington Park Racetrack (2121 W. Northwest Highway)
· Lots S, A and E (although these lots fill quickly)

The "4 Hour Parking" will still be available in the North Garage during the maintenance work. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience the construction and parking accommodations may cause you.

If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the Public Works Department at 847-368-5800 or check the Village's website for updates, as well as @ArlingtonHtsGov, or the Village of Arlington Heights Facebook page.
