Best of the Best

In addition to winning ENR Midwest’s 2019 Best Projects award, The 41st Street Pedestrian Arch Bridge on Chicago’s Lakeshore drive earned ENR’s National award for Project of the Year.

“The 41st Street Pedestrian Arch Bridge project team overcame the daunting task of spanning 1,470 ft over active rail lines, catenary wires and all eight lanes of Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive. The $28-million pedestrian and bicycle bridge features twisting approaches that form a giant S connecting the Park Crescent community in the Bronzeville neighborhood to 41st Street Beach.”
