Lake County Parking Garage Closing for Rehabilitation (July 13 - Nov. 13)

Lake County will close the 508-space public and employee parking garage located at 18 N. County Street for four months beginning Monday, July 13. During the closure, the parking garage will undergo scheduled repairs. The work will consist of repairing exposed steel and structural cracks, replacing failing drains and storm water plumbing lines, installing two additional electric vehicle charging stations, and resurfacing the lower level.

The Lake County Board recently approved a parking lease with the City of Waukegan for their City of Waukegan Garage at 225 N County St. This public garage is located one block from the Lake County Government campus and courthouse, and employees and those visiting the main Lake County Government tower may park there for the duration of the rehabilitation project.

Those visiting the courthouse are encouraged to park in the city lot at Clayton and County St where parking fees are $1 per hour. A list of courthouse parking alternatives is below: View this map for lot locations

  • Lot C: Clayton and County streets
  • Lot D: Sheridan Road and Clayton Street

  • Lot O: Behind Genesee Theater (north side of Sheridan Rd & Clayton St)

The Lake County Parking Garage Rehabilitation project is expected to be completed by Friday, Nov. 13.
