Making roomPhotos by Steve Spoden IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG for Village of Lombard Public Works employees to demolish an existing garage at 7 E. St. Charles Road in downtown Lombard on Thursday. The structure was in the way for the expansion of the Hammerschmidt commuter parking lot (pictured in the distance in the top photo). After two nearby cars were moved a safe distance away from the work site, demolition began about 10:30 a.m. and by 11:45 a.m. only part of the rear wall was left standing. The land was acquired by the village in December for the project which will add 95 parking spaces to the Hammerschmidt lot. Expansion construction is planned to begin later this year.
