IDOT I-94 (Bishop Ford) Construction Inspection
EDI was selected in a Joint Venture with Ardmore Associates, LLC to provide Construction Inspection and Quality Assurance testing for improvements to the interchange of I-94 (Bishop Ford Expressway) and Stoney Island Avenue on the south Side of Chicago. The interchange connects a major north-south expressway with a major arterial roadway in an area with high volumes of truck traffic associated with a large commercial area.
Ardmore/EDI is providing construction surveys, staking, inspection, quality assurance testing and reporting, measurement, computation and documentation of quantities for construction work performed by McHugh ConstructioThe project is needed because the existing bridges within the interchange are deteriorating and in need of major rehabilitation including redecking, widening and substructure repair or complete removal and replacement.
The project includes seven bridges, several of which are long curved girder bridges requiring special attention. Maintenance of traffic is a unique challenge. Weekend lane closures and complete ramp closures are necessary for proper construction sequencing required in the Plans and Specifications.
