Roadway, Parking Lot and Associated Landscape Improvements – Phases 1 and 2

summer  landscape rendering

A park for cars. That’s what Architect Peter Lindsay Schaudt has planned for a parking area fronting Fawell Boulevard (the college’s front door). The plan places popular bio-swales in the parking area that contain prairie grasses, native trees – and the illusion of an Illinois prairie. New exits and entrances will smooth the flow of traffic. The plan provides for the replanting of 32 trees “in tribute,” the elimination of 342 established trees and the planting of 895 new trees.

The first project phase transformed the area stretching from in front of the McAninch Arts Center (MAC) to Lambert Road. The second phase addresses lots south of the Berg Instructional Center and Physical Education and Community Recreation Center.

When completed, the college will gain nearly 1,000 parking spaces on the east side of Lambert Road and more green space on campus. The above artist’s rendering shows the new “front door” for the college off Fawell Boulevard.
