The long-awaited construction to renovate the Metra train station in downtown Libertyville is scheduled to begin Monday.

The project will include partial demolition of the existing structure and other work, including the addition of handicapped-accessible restrooms and upgrades to the waiting room, main entrance and ticket agent room.

During construction, a temporary ticket trailer will be available for commuters. Also, 20 existing Metra permit holder parking lot spaces will be temporarily relocated to the north end of the American Legion parking lot, south of the main lot.

The village has been stockpiling commuter parking fees for years and they will be used for the $1.29 million project. Metra is contributing $300,000 toward the cost. The project is expected to be complete next spring.

Questions should be directed to the village engineering office, (847) 918-2100. Visit www.libertyville.com/metrarenovation for project background, information and updates.
