Project Description

JSE provided design plans and calculations for construction of the EB widening of I-88. JSE prepared all details required to construct this project including bridge plans, alignment plans, grading plans, traffic signal plans, landscaping plans, cross sections, drainage plans and maintenance of traffic details. The highlight of the project was the I-88 over Fox River bridge. This is a 10-span bridge approximately 1340’ in length with the main spans (180’ in length each) composed of structural arch members supporting a prestressed beam superstructure.

This bridge was featured in the Summer 2009 issue of Aspire magazine and was on Road & Bridges top 10 list of best bridges in 2008. Additionally, this bridge received an Honor Award from ACEC.
