The Chicago Department of Transportation is replacing the deteriorated Lake Shore Drive pin and link bridge systems. Temporary shoring towers, jacking, and cribbing are needed to support the existing superstructure while the pins are replaced.

Because this segment of Lake Shore Drive includes three levels, shoring towers are needed to transfer load between the multiple levels. Special care and attention are needed to identify load paths, so the towers do not overstress existing members in localized areas. In addition, maintenance of traffic plan details are required to stage traffic off the lanes, directly above the pin and link replacements. Maintenance of traffic is being sequenced for the roadway’s multiple levels and affects the shoring type, which will expedite the project schedule. Gannett Fleming was hired by S&J Construction/Kapo JV to provide structural design and plans for the temporary shoring towers and maintenance of traffic plan and details.

Join our presentation to learn more about this important bridge project.
