Crews completed installation of the new sheet piling for the reinforced seawall on the north side of Ogden Slip in August. Construction of the concrete pier on the north side of the slip will be completed during September.
In DuSable Park, the contractor will be mobilizing cranes and shoring that will be used to set the steel spine over the Ogden Slip. Fabrication of the structural steel spine and ribs for the new bridge continues with the installation of attachments for the ribs on the steel spine. The spine pieces will be trimmed to final length before they are assembled in the field.
Major equipment and structural steel deliveries are expected in late September and will require oversized loads to enter the project site on North Water Street. Access routes and parking restriction needs are being coordinated and additional details will be sent out as they are finalized.
