Van Buren Parking Deck Maintenance
The Downtown Parking Deck Maintenance Program was established in 2016 as a multi-year capital project to ensure the Central Business District parking decks are maintained as a sustainable asset.
Beginning the week of April 3, the City of Naperville, in partnership with J.Gill and Company will begin a five-phase project to repair the Van Buren parking deck 43 W. Van Buren Avenue. This project will consist of repairs to tee flanges, tee stems, beams, columns and walls. Additionally, work will also include replacement of floor sealants, expansion joints, traffic bearing membrane, floor drains, and other miscellaneous repairs on the upper and middle levels of the parking structure.
The work will take place in five phases. Crews will work on one deck level per phase, with the first phase of work beginning on the fifth level of the deck. Crews will work their way down each level, with each phase taking approximately five to six weeks to complete. Pending weather and unforeseen circumstances, all work should be complete, and all parking spaces reopened by the end of November 2023.
Due to the nature of the work, no parking will be available on the level where work is being performed. In addition, portions of the floor directly under the work will be closed for safety. Traffic devices will be in place to direct motorists through the areas closed for construction.
Crews will work Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Unless otherwise noted, staff will work with the contractor to open as much available parking as possible for use on Saturdays and Sundays. Visitors should follow all posted detour and closure signs and use caution while accessing the parking deck. As a reminder, overnight parking is prohibited in the Van Buren parking deck on Sundays. Visit the downtown parking page for more information about downtown parking facilities.
