Ashland Yard Lead Improvement Project Rail Bridges – Halsted, Union, and Emerald



McHugh performed the reconstruction of three rail bridges including Halsted Street, Union Avenue, and Emerald Avenue, as part of the CREATE program’s Ashland Avenue Yard Lead Improvement Project. Work included demolition of the existing structures, repairing deteriorated abutment walls and placing new steel girders and stringers. The construction was phased to minimize any impact to train service.
