Hutchison Engineering, Inc. (HEI) was selected by the LaSalle County Highway Department and the City of Streator to provide preliminary engineering and construction oversight services for the removal and replacement of the Broadway St. Bridge over the BNSF RR switching yard in Streator, IL. The existing 20 span, 843’ long truss bridge spanned a total of ten tracks and a public street. The project was adjacent to many residential and commercial developments. The new bridge is a three-span composite, continuous welded steel plate beam girder superstructure supported on pile bent abutments and piers. The bridge is 386 feet long and 30 feet wide face to face of parapets. There is a 6 feet wide sidewalk separated from traffic by a parapet. This project included the establishment of a new profile, structure and MSE wall construction, curb and gutter and storm sewer installation. The project also involved extensive railroad and utility coordination. Construction of this $6 million bridge replacement project was completed in 2007.
