Paving Closures Continue at Route 59 Commuter Lot

The last easternmost section of the Route 59 commuter parking lot is scheduled to be closed and repaved the weekend of June 23 and 24 as part of the City’s Municipal Parking Lot Improvement Project.

The work will occur in the lot located north of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad in the section that is located east of Fairway Drive. Motorists are encouraged to park in the areas west of Fairway Drive over the weekend and can consult maps at the station for closed sections and the City’s website at for additional information. The Route 59 lot has been repaved in sections every weekend in June.

In addition to the work at the Route 59 commuter lot, concrete sidewalk and curb repairs will continue to be performed at the Naperville Metra Station around the station platform.

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, 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 at the Fourth Avenue parking lot located east of the Naperville Metra Station is scheduled for July. More information including detailed closures will be posted at the station, in the lot, on the City’s website and in the local media in the coming weeks.

Construction on all lots is slated for completion by October 2012.
