Bartlett Road Bridge over Jane Addams Memorial Tollway ​

Cook County, Illinois

  • Phase II design engineering services were performed for the reconstruction of the Bartlett Road Bridge over the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. These improvements were completed as part of the Illinois Tollway’s overall reconstruction of the I-90 East Corridor from the Elgin Toll Plaza to the Kennedy Expressway.

  • The project included raising the Bartlett Road profile over I-90 by approximately five feet in order to accommodate the deeper bridge beams, to provide adequate vertical clearance over mainline pavement and to improve drainage conditions along I-90.

  • The existing Bartlett Road bridge was reconstructed as a two-span structure with a total length of 247 feet and an out-to-out width of 48 feet. The bridge section also includes a 10-foot bike path along the east side with an adjacent parapet wall and handrail.  The bridge deck is supported on 54-inch shallow depth PPC Bulb-T Beams with semi-integral abutments supported on drilled shafts.

  • Reconstruction of the roadway approaches included 2,000 feet of pavement reconstruction, drainage improvements and MSE retaining walls.

  • Bartlett Road was closed during construction and traffic was detoured  to other routes.

  • The project was closely coordinated with the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways and the developer of the adjacent Sutton Crossing.
