Deering Bridge Rehabilitation

Chicago, Illinois

This $1.5-million rehabilitation project consisted of a fixed-trunnion, bascule railroad bridge over the Chicago River near the intersection of North Ashland and West Webster Avenues. Rehabilitation included demolition, structural steel replacement and repair, as well as geotechnical stabilization. Due to the bridge being located over a river, all work incorporated with the sheeting and ground anchor system had to be performed on the river by working from a barge.
