The City of Evanston is scheduled to begin a $2.1 million repair project on its three downtown garages in July.
The repair project is the result of a comprehensive analysis of conditions in the garages conducted two years ago, and city officials say some of the proposed repairs and upgrades hadn’t been addressed in nearly 20 years, since the oldest of the garages, on Church Street, was built.
The city is currently seeking bids on the work. Officials say the project may lead to some minor delays and inconveniencies, the parking garages will remain open during the repair process and permit parking will not be affected.
The work includes structural concrete repair, waterproofing coatings and electrical, mechanical and plumbing projects.
