Church Street Garage Construction
Construction of the new 317-space parking garage continues on schedule. Walsh Construction continues work on the excavation, framing, concrete pouring, waterproofing and backfilling of the remaining foundation footings and walls. The interior plumbing work has also begun.

Lake Street Garage Maintenance
In order to keep the Lake Street garage in working condition, maintenance has been scheduled to be completed by J. Gill & Company. Concrete patching and caulking is underway. Temporary closures of some parking spaces will be required at times. The Lake Street driveway entrance will be temporarily closed for repair at which time guests are asked to use the entrance at the south side of the garage facing Chase bank. This project is anticipated for completion by September 10th. Please drive carefully during the construction.
Customers First: The Village's Customer First parking policy is designed to protect and ensure the success of our downtown businesses. Businesses are asked to please help educate employees where they can park. The Employee Parking Map is available on the project website. Parking in lesser utilized areas is encouraged, including:
- the east parking lot of Cook Apartments (southwest corner Cook Av & First St by posted signs) 8am-6pm Monday-Friday,
- the eastern portion of the Newberry Ave lot,
- the lower level of the Lake Street Parking Structure (employees only during day, available to customers after 5pm), and
- the downtown Metra lot which becomes available for free to employees/customers after 5pm and on weekends (only paying commuters during day).
If an employer/landlord does not provide private parking for employees, employees of the downtown must park in designated employee parking areas with a employee hangtag displayed. Hangtags can be purchased at the Libertyville Police Department, 200 E Cook Av (847-362-8310).
Thank You! Your patience during construction is appreciated. Please know that at the end of construction a new source of parking will be available.
