Project Overview

In June of 2018 Millstone Weber was awarded this $24million dollar project to remove and replace the Martin Luther King Approach Bridge. This bridge carries traffic over I-55/64, 3 railroad tracks and IL Rt. 3. The new 1300 LF bridge is a 5 span structural steel beam structure with a substructure consisting 48” diameter pipe piles driven 100’ to bedrock. In addition to replacing this structure Millstone Weber will rehabilitate 7 surrounding bridges and remove and replace the existing concrete pavement.
