Vail Garage Maintenance Work Begins April 17, No Daily Fee Parking Spaces for Duration of Project
April 3, 2017
Necessary maintenance work for the Vail Garage, located at Vail Avenue and Sigwalt Street, will begin April 17 and is expected to be completed in early September, 2017. This maintenance work is part of a “Parking Garage Rehabilitation Program” approved by the Village Board two years ago for Village-owned Parking Garages.
During this project, there will be NO Daily Fee parking spaces available in the Vail Garage. All permit users (residents, merchants, and commuters) will still be allowed to utilize the garage. However, since parking will affect one quarter of two floors at a time, available parking spaces will be limited. There will be limited permit parking available in the garage, but will be on a first-come, first-served basis in order to best accommodate merchant parking, and parking for Downtown residents, commuters and shoppers.
Due to the fluidity of the construction, available parking spaces will be shifting around the garage, on almost a weekly basis. Since there will be no Daily Fee parking, permit users will be allowed to utilize the 4th floor/ 5th floor (top) where open, during construction.
Informational and directional signs will be placed in the Vail Garage to assist parkers. For the duration of this project, please allow additional time in locating available parking. Refer to the parking map
for locations of other garages and parking lots.
- Municipal Garage (adjacent to Village Hall)
- North Garage (Miner & Arlington Heights Road)
- Underground Garage (Evergreen & Sigwalt)
- Lot O (across from Village Hall; southeast corner of Sigwalt St and Arlington Heights Rd)
- Arlington Park Racetrack (2121 W. Northwest Highway)
- Lots S, A and E (although these lots fill quickly)
The “4 Hour Parking” will still be available in the Vail Garage during the maintenance work.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience the construction and parking accommodations may cause you. Please be aware that much of the maintenance work will create dust, and the Village’s contractor will work to minimize the dusty conditions as much as possible.
The maintenance work being done to the Vail Garage will eliminate deficiencies in the structures, which, if left unchecked, could lead to future, more extensive/costly repairs. This work will result in improving the structural integrity of the Village's garages.
If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the Public Works Department at 847-368-5800 or check the Village's website for updates, as well as @ArlingtonHtsGov, or the Village of Arlington Heights Facebook.
