- Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said the total cost of the judicial parking lot project was $1.2 million. The correct total is $795,397, as indicated in the article below.
Now that the 16th Circuit Court probation officers and youth counselors strike is over, work is expected to begin next week on repaving of the Kane County Judicial Center parking lot.
Parking at the Judicial Center, located at 37W777 IL Route 38 in St. Charles, will be limited during the course of the $795,397 project, which is expected to be completed by Aug. 3, weather permitting.
The Judicial Center campus includes the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, the Adult Justice Center and the Juvenile Justice Center buildings.
Kane County Executive Director Of Building Management Don Biggs said work will be completed in phases. (See the map below.) Portions of campus parking that are under construction will be blocked off, and motorists will be directed to other parts of the Judicial Center campus, Biggs said.
The project originally had budgeted to take place over three years: $645,000 in FY 2018, $400,000 from the estimated budget in FY 2019 and $175,000 from the estimated budget in FY 2020, for a total of $1.2 million. The work is now scheduled to be done in one year.
“By doing the project in one year instead of three phases, the county will save at least $424,000,” Biggs said at a County Board meeting back in February.
“This way, we’ll (save money and) reduce the impact on the employees who work at the Judicial Center and the citizens who visit there.”
The lowest responsive and responsible bidder for the project was Brothers Asphalt Paving, Inc, of Addison for a total base bid of $236,922 and eight alternates for a total of $425,908.
