CITY OF NAPERVILLE: Improvements to Naperville Metra Station Scheduled to Begin October 7

Local Government

By Press release submission | Oct 6, 2019


City of Naperville issued the following announcement on Oct. 3.

Construction to complete ADA improvements at the Naperville Metra Station located at 105 E. 4th Ave. will begin the week of October 7. This project will include replacing the doors on the north and south sides of the station, as well as the station walkway and adjacent sidewalk on the south side of the building. These enhancements will improve the function of the station and enhance safety for train station users. Work is expected to be complete by December 15, weather depending.

Construction is scheduled between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Most of the work will take place during midday hours to minimize interruption to station activities; however, there will be times during the morning and afternoon rush times when work vehicles will be present for 5-10 minutes at a time to drop-off materials and equipment and pour concrete.

Work will begin with the removal and replacement of the entrance walkway and adjacent sidewalk. Once concrete work is complete, crews will begin door replacement one door at a time, beginning with the south door and moving to the north door once installation of the south door is complete. Three of the four station doors will remain accessible at all times. All schedules are dependent on weather and unforeseen circumstances.

Parking and bus access will not be restricted during construction. While no services will be shut down completely, commuters should expect some changes to station access throughout various phases of the project. Temporary barricades and signage will be in place to direct commuters when necessary. Commuters are asked to plan accordingly for these changes.
