D Construction is close to completing the Indian Trail over the Fox River bridge improvements project! The remaining bridge related tasks currently being focused on consist of painting the steel beams and concrete parapet. D Construction has also been concentrating on finishing the new pavement, sidewalk and driveway work in between and outside of the bridges from IL-31 to IL-25. D Construction's electrician, DND Electric, is currently working on the new and improved lighting and miscellaneous traffic signal work between IL-31 and IL-25.
D Construction completed the west portion of the west bridge deck over the Fox River. The sidewalks along the entire west bridge and the approach slabs have been poured. With respect to the bridge work, D Construction is currently focusing on the west bridge's decorative concrete bridge railing/parapet. The Contractor has other crews working on items such as storm sewer, earthwork, electrical and pavement improvements as the schedule moves closer towards project completion.
D Construction successfully poured the concrete bridge deck for the east half of the west bridge over the Fox River. The Contractor can now focus on completing the sidewalks and concrete bridge railing for the east half. The west half of the west bridge is completely framed and reinforcement work is underway so that the remaining portion of the bridge can be poured. Please check the photo gallery for pictures of the recent bridge deck pour. Please continue to visit the website for more updates on progress.
D Construction completed framing the east half of the west bridge over the Fox River and is about to begin installing the bridge deck reinforcement. The Contractor has begun framing the west half of the bridge now that the pier improvements and steel beam installation is finished. The Contractor has also started storm sewer work associated with the bridge improvements. The next large task at hand is pouring the concrete bridge deck. D Construction plans to pour the east half first, and then follow up a week later to pour the west half.
D Construction completed installing all components of the new outer steel beams and replacing the existing beam support bearings at each pier and abutment for the east half of the west bridge over the Fox River. The Contractor is now focusing on framing the east half replacement bridge deck. While the carpenters are working on framing the east half of the bridge, Ironworkers will be jacking up the beams for the west half of the bridge and replacing the pier seats and support bearings.
