Fulton Street will be closed until late November

(Elgin, IL) - 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.
