PLEASE PARDON OUR DUST: A REIMAGINED NAVY PIER

Navy Pier is currently in the midst of a transformative project that will reimagine it into a bolder, greener and more contemporary urban space for decades to come. 

Construction activity is planned in a way that minimizes the impact on the guest experience. For information on what you can expect during your visit, please click here.

SPECIAL PARKING GARAGE NOTICE: To ensure the safety of all our guests during construction of the new Ferris Wheel, entry and exit to the WEST Garage at Navy Pier will include minor reconfiguration. Certain access lanes and a small number of parking spaces will be blocked off or narrowed while work is done above the garage. Please use care while driving and walking inside the garage and follow all Attendant guidance and specially posted signage. The EAST Garage remains in its normal configuration. Thank you for your support as we continue building excitement at Navy Pier. For information on our special remote alternate parking garage partners click here.

SPECIAL GRAND AVENUE NOTICE: The Chicago Department of Transportation continues its work to create a flyover bridge for the Chicago Lakefront Trail to ease congestion by diverting cyclists and pedestrians above and over vehicular traffic near Navy Pier. Lane reductions are currently in place on Grand Avenue from Navy Pier to Lake Shore drive. These lane changes may cause traffic delays for vehicles exiting Navy Pier, especially at peak times on peak days such as weekends and during special events. Please plan your visit accordingly. For more information please visit the CDOT website by clicking here.

Navy Pier will continue with regular operating hours found here throughout this process and select full-service restaurants, boats and theaters will keep extended hours as their schedules dictate. The East and West indoor parking garages located on Navy Pier, which can accommodate 1,500 vehicles, are open and easily accessible from Illinois Street and Lake Shore Drive.
