The Village of Oak Lawn is launching a multi-year project to make needed repairs to our parking garage which will extend the lifespan of the facility.

The garage will remain open during the renovations, however:  Please be advised that certain sections of the garage primarily on the 4TH and 5TH floors will be closed off during the repair work. No Parking signs will be posted. PLEASE ADHERE TO THE SIGNS OR YOU WILL BE TICKETED AND TOWEDTraffic patterns will be maintained, however travel lanes will be shifted with traffic control. While work is occurring there may be some occasional dust created as concrete and joint repairs are being made. 

Temporary additional permit parking for users will be located at:  North side of 96TH St. between 52nd Ave and Cook Ave. South side of Yourell Ave. between 52nd Ave. and Cook Ave.

Oak Lawn is dedicated to maintaining and improving its infrastructure to meet the needs of current residents and to be prepared for future generations.  From 2007 through 2013 the Village undertook an aggressive infrastructure improvement program to repair and replace a substantial portion of its infrastructure.  This is just a first step in a multi year annual maintenance program.  Like many Chicagoland communities built in the "post war" era, Oak Lawn will need to replace its aging infrastructure in the coming years.  To view the progress and history of recent improvement projects click here

The Village supplements local funding for these improvements with a combination of Motor Fuel Tax, Surface Transportation Program Funds, ARRA Stimulus funds and low interest Build America Bonds.  Oak Lawn continues to seek additional funding through local, state and federal agencies to get the most out of local dollars spent on these projects.   Oak Lawn works closely with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) and the Cook County Highway Department (CCHD).  These agencies own and maintain infrastructure within Oak Lawn boundaries that serves Oak Lawn residents.
