The new downtown Glen Ellyn parking garage, located directly behind the Civic Center at 535 Duane Street, is now open to the public. The new garage, accessible from Duane Street, features 277 stalls within five tiers of parking, one of which is underground. In addition to the garage, a row of ten surface parking stalls line the west side of the driveway from Duane Street.
The new garage serves parking patrons including residents, Metra commuters, businesses, visitors to Glen Ellyn, as well as Civic Center employees. Parking restrictions within the garage include:
- Lower Level: Civic Center employees.
- Ground level and 2nd Floor: Free 3-hour customer parking.
- 3rd and 4th Floor: Designated permit parking for commuters, downtown employees and neighboring residents.
Free public parking is available throughout the garage after 3 p.m. daily and all day on weekends. Please note that there is no parking from 2 a.m. – 6 a.m., except by overnight permit.
Also open is the pedway, the pedestrian connection from the parking garage to Main Street and Duane Street. This important improvement offers better access for customers, Metra commuters and employees between the parking garage and businesses in the downtown.
Although the new garage and pedway opened May 1, work will continue through the spring months including landscaping improvements, outdoor dining opportunities and decorative art additions
