This project involves constructing a grade separation under (4) active CSX/IHB tracks. It required us to relocate Com Ed’s transmission and distribution lines, relocated an eight inch high pressure gas main, relocate an eighty four inch storm line, and a sixteen inch waterline in order to construct the underpass. Once the utilities were relocated jump spans were constructed on each side on the street in order to minimize track down time in order to construct the underpass abutment walls. Once the abutment walls are constructed the tracks will be taken out of service for 24 hours in order to set the permanent span. Then the rest of the underpass can be constructed with no more interference to train traffic.
