F. E. Jordan Associates, Inc. provided construction management services on this project for two years. The project consisted of the complete reconstruction of a section of North Lake Shore Drive between the Chicago River on the south and Grand Avenue on the north. A double level roadway facility was planned to carry through traffic on top of Lake Shore Drive and local traffic beneath. Major planned redevelopments of Navy Pier and adjacent properties will utilize the new roadways.
The major components of the multi-level project include a 600-foot, single-leveled structure, 150 to 165 feet in width, and 590 feet of a two-level structure, 110 to 180 feet in width. The project also included several retaining walls and 1,540 feet of ramps. Plans called for the removal of the existing structure to take place in stages and a temporary bridge across the Ogden Slip to be constructed so traffic would flow during construction. The design of drainage facilities, lighting and power are also included in the project. The approximate construction cost for this roadway project is $29 million. The CM prime was H.W. Lockner.
