The 1-190 ATS Bridge Relocation Project at O'Hare International Airport was completed on November 15, 2014 ahead of schedule. Rossi wishes to thank everyone connected with this project for a timely and professional group effort, including CDA, CDOT, IDOT, OATS, CTA & CARE PLUS.
Rossi has completed work on the removal and reconstruction of two bridge piers from the I-190 to the CTA Blue Line with the help of several competent subcontractors. This project was needed because the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) widened the I-190 to provide some congestion relief on the Kennedy Expressway, which directly impacted the structure carrying the Airport Transit System (ATS) Automated Guideway Bridge over the I-190.
Some of the work involved in the project included, but was not limited to:
Temporary rerouting of ATS electrical hardware from guideway on to aerial cables over I-190 and CTA.
Removal of existing abutment and piers south of I-190.
Removal, replacement, or reinstallation of all ties, rails, insulators, negative return, conduit, and appurtenances.
Coordination/joint effort with the Chicago Department of Transportation, IDOT, CTA, CDA, O’Hare Airport Transit System, and Siemens.
Construction of new abutment, slope wall, concrete faces retaining wall and pier south of I-190.
Furnishing and erecting two-span continuous unit steel girders over eastbound I-190 and proposed Balmoral Avenue.
