Parking Lots 2, 3 & 8/Roadway Improvements

Project Description:

This series of projects will resurface, reconfigured, and expand several parking lots on the Grayslake campus. Parking Lot 8, a staff lot located behind the Technology building, will be expanded adding approximately 80 additional staff parking spaces. Lots 2 and 3, two large student lots on the north side of campus will be resurfaced and given lighting upgrades. In addition to the work on the parking lots, a section of Willow Way will be rerouted to pass in front of the PE Center modifying the existing roadway loop around campus.

This lot resurfacing project will grind down the existing asphalt layer and place a newer layer on top. This project will also incorporate the use of bio-swales to assist in filtering out sediment and debris before entering the stormwater system
