Scope of work included extensive bridge construction over two waterways, the Kankakee River and Forked Creek. A 16-span temporary structure was used to accommodate construction of a new 604-foot, eight-span bridge, which stretches across the Kankakee River. Drilled shaft H-pile retaining walls utilizing both a cast-in-place concrete face with tie backs as well as precast sections provided soil retention at the Kankakee River Bridge abutments.
Two other new railroad bridges were also constructed as part of the project, a 197-foot, three-span bridge over Forked Creek and a single span bridge over Water Street. The three new structures allowed for 3,200 feet of new track and signal work as well as three ADA-compliant railroad crossing and signal work to take place within the two-mile stretch of project limits. The project also included five utility relocations of watermain and sanitary sewer, four of which were jacked and bored and one of which was installed in-stream across Forked Creek.
