Nichols Library Parking Deck

Naperville’s Transportation, Engineering and Development (TED) group is in the preliminary stages of reigniting a 13-year-old project to add parking to Downtown Naperville. In 2009, a plan to add a four-story, 501-spot L-shaped parking deck around Nichols Library was halted due to the economic recession. With parking in that area still an issue, TED held an open house last night for community members to state their interest and voice their concerns about restarting the same plan. The proposed garage would replace the already existing parking lot on Jefferson Avenue from Webster Street to Eagle Street, and then hook down Eagle connecting the deck to Jackson Avenue. The current estimated cost for the project is $23.5 million. More information on the project is available on the city’s website.
