La Grange Board puts renovations to Stone Avenue station on hold
LA GRANGE – A $1 million-renovation project for the historic Stone Avenue Train Station is on hold – and the deadline for getting it done is nearing.
In December, the village received six bids for the project, which would preserve historic elements to the station – a limestone structure built in 1901 – and also include accessibility enhancements. But all bids exceeded the allotted budget and were therefore rejected.
Village staff then worked with the project's architect, Legat Architects, to reduce the scope of the project before asking for new bids. But, the only bidder to submit a bid within budget did not meet one of the project's requirements – that the contract go to a business qualifying as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise.
