Downtown Naperville Train Station Entrance Work to Begin November 2
East and west entrances will be rebuilt to ADA standards
Pending weather or unforeseen circumstances, reconstruction work of the east and west entrances to the Downtown Naperville Train Station, 105 E. 4th St., will begin on Wednesday, November 2. Work on the doorways will result in their closure, but the station will remain accessible via the north and south entrances at all times.
The west entrance will be the first to see work done on Wednesday, November 2 with work beginning on the east entrance on Thursday, November 3. A concrete square approximately seven feet by seven feet will be torn out and re-poured in order to bring the level up closer to grade with the threshold of each door. Work will continue on the flooring around the east entrance on Friday, November 4. In addition, assistive door openers will be installed on both entrances. These doors will be back in service by the end of the day on Friday, November 4. Final adjustment work and clean-up will be completed on Monday, November 7 and Tuesday, November 8.
This work is part of Naperville’s Facility Transition Plan to make City-owned facilities compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility guidelines. In addition, work was completed late last week to make bathroom facilities as well as features such as fire extinguishers and thermostats in the station accessible.
All work will be conducted between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Services provided within the train station will remain available at all times during this project. However, entry to and exit from the station will be relegated to just the north and south entrances at the center of the building.
