Parking Lot Safety Improvements

In late July a construction project will begin at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library to make improvements to its outdoor parking lot, underground parking structure and pedestrian walkways. The goal of the project is to improve safety and accessibility for customers – both pedestrians and those in cars. The renovation project will be completed in phases in an effort to minimize inconvenience. The targeted completion date is early October.
Improvements include:
  • Clearly identified pedestrian walkways
  • Brighter garage lighting
  • Improved directional signs
  • Automatic sliding doors
  • Improved vehicle entrances and exits

Where to park:
  • Outdoor parking will remain open during construction.
  • Dunton Street entrance with accessible ramps and elevator will always be available.
  • Parking is also available in the commuter lot across Vail Street, free on weekends and Monday–Friday after noon.
Returning items:
  • Starting Monday, July 31, and throughout the duration of the project, the grace period for loans will be extended from 3 to 10 days.
  • Dunton Street book drop will always be available.
The total cost of the project is $1.18 million, which is being funded by the library’s capital improvements budget, and was approved by the Board of Library Trustees in May 2017.
