Fulton Street will be closed from Villa Street to mid block from Spring Street beginning March 14, 2005 for construction of the new parking deck. The street will remain closed until late November 2005. The section of Fulton to be closed will be used as a staging area for construction activities associated with the deck construction.
The Fulton Street Parking Deck project was awarded to Shales McNutt Construction (SMC), by the City Council at the March 9, 2005 City Council meeting. The architectural appearance of the deck exterior is proposed to be brick with a varying “roof” line to give the appearance of a row of different buildings. The deck openings will have varying treatments to give the impression of different window styles. Property to the Southeast of the deck will be used as a surface parking lot. The existing parking lot will be used as a temporary parking lot for the Prairie Rock Brewery during the deck construction. This provides parking during construction of the condominiums in the lot currently used by Prairie Rock customers. Once construction of the deck is complete, the existing parking lot will be removed and a new lot will be constructed.
Any questions regarding this construction may be directed to Elgin Public Works Department at 847-697-3160.
