Illinois Constructors to Reconstruct Shermer Road Bridge in Illinois

Words: Dan KamysIllinois Constructors to Reconstruct Shermer Road Bridge in Illinois
Illinois Constructors (ICC) is expected to reconstruct the Shermer Road bridge in Northbrook, Ill., by the end of 2013 for the Union Pacific Railroad (UP). A new, more expansive bridge will be built in place of the fallen bridge that collapsed last year.

Work on the new bridge and roadway is underway. Site work has started just to the south of the Willow and Shermer roads intersection, and the bridge work is proceeding on schedule. In addition to the UP, Illlinois Constructors will be working closely with the Village of Northbrook to complete the construction project and keep the Village up to date throughout the process.

"The construction start on the bridge was expedited faster than the previous estimates of the 2014 construction schedule due to the excellent cooperation between the State of Illinois, Glenview, Northbrook, and the Union Pacific. We were able to obtain permits earlier than expected which allowed us to start the project now," says Illinois Constructors President John Mackanin.

Roadway traffic will be closed until early-2014, and the bridge is expected to be open to rail traffic by the end of 2013.
