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.

  1. Precast erection has begun.
  2. The asphalt patching on 14th and 17th Streets is complete. 
  3. The underground plumbing (excluding the garage area) is almost complete. This will give a good head start once the building is enclosed and make for a fast floor pour.

11/12/18 Update

  1. With the new precast erection start date, the project is moving forward with the remaining underground plumbing at the building. This will keep us on target for steel coming at the end of December. The underground plumbing inspections are complete. So far have all passed and the detention area work is almost complete.
  2. The precast contractor is back on site to confirm/adjust the necessary embed plates which were cast in to the foundation walls. The deadmen (anchors for panel erection) for the precast are being drilled and will continue next week.
