The New St. Charles Police Station

The new St. Charles Police Station at 1515 W. Main Street replaces the former police station at 211 N. Riverside Ave., portions of which date back nearly 100 years. The $24.6 million project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget. This new facility will support the City’s policing operations for the next 50 years.

Project Construction Timeline

6/28/19 Update

  1. The binder course of asphalt kicked off on Tuesday with the majority being completed today. However, this is only the first step in the process. The final layer and striping will be put down towards the end of the project to avoid any damage.
  2. Our final precast infill was completed this week at the west storm shelter.
  3. The second floor is officially closed for business.

6/21/19 Update

  1. The casework for the second floor and majority of first floor was delivered early this week. 
  2. The second floor lobby glass railing work has started.
  3. The exterior flatwork is ongoing with the work outside of the lobby 50% complete. 
  4. The parking lot and drive coming in from main street are in the final stages of prep for asphalt next week (weather depending). Our site team has been focusing on keeping the concrete trucks on the approved routes so as to not ruin the prep work.

6/7/19 Update

  1. The squad garage is ready and waiting to be inspected on Monday and poured on Tuesday.

5/31/19 Update

  1. The most North portion of the squad garage has been poured. This allows the main building material and equipment to be moved out and into this area. This will help the finish trades increase efficiency.
