Downtown Metra Station Renovation

September 5, 2018
As previously mentioned, the Village of Libertyville will be overseeing the renovation of the downtown Metra station building.  Twenty commuter permit parking spaces will be displaced during the renovation by the necessary staging areas.  The 20 permit parking spaces will be temporarily relocated to the north end of the American Legion Lot off Lake Street. The 20 permit parking spaces relocated to the American Legion Lot will have signs posted designating these spots as commuter permit parking Monday to Friday 5:00 am – 5:00 pm.  The 20 American Legion Lot permit parking spaces and the recommended walking route to the Metra Station from the American Legion Lot are shown on the map below.  

The contractor has been given the notice to proceed for the project.  The staging area will soon be fenced off.  Once started, the project is expected to take 6-months to complete.
