Mayslake Peabody Estate West Parking Lot Improvements *

Planning Project

Mayslake Peabody Estate West Parking Lot Improvements *

(A certified master plan project)

The west parking lot at Mayslake Peabody Estate is the central location for The Forest Preserve District's popular annual Native Plant Sale.

The parking lot is in need of improvements because it has lost 50% or more of its integrity and durability. 

The project involves the complete removal and replacement of all asphalt surfaces in the parking lot and addressing the insufficient aggregate base under the parking lot, which has caused integrity issues within the surface of the asphalt such as potholes.

Additionally, the project will include replacing some of the concrete curb, sidewalks and will address drainage issues along the parking lot and building.

 

Status

Work is expected to begin in September 2020 and be completed by May 2021.


Funding

The $306,947 project is funded through a combination of non-referendum bond funds and yearly appropriated construction and development funds.
