"Due to the proximity of the Art Institute and the maturity of the trees and parkland in South Grant Park, it was decided that the park could not be removed," said Mike Gould, McHugh project manager. "So essentially, this rehab turned into a giant tunneling job."

As with a tunneling project, all work is routed through access holes. Everything-people, equipment, and the 16,000 yards of concrete and 2,000 tons of reinforcing steel-must come and go through two 30-by-30-foot access holes above the garage. Concrete is pumped in and then fed along "slick lines," Gould said.

Despite the work on the street, two lanes both northbound and southbound will remain open at all times, Gould said.

An unusual blend of a self-anchored suspension bridge and a cable-stayed bridge, the North Avenue Bridge will be one of the first such hybrid systems in the country, according to Mike Gould, McHugh senior vice president of infrastructure construction.

The learning curve developed from building the first bridge helped McHugh complete the work so early, said Michael Gould, McHugh vice president of infrastructure, as did a good rapport with the Tollway. "We had an excellent relationship with the Tollway, built during construction of the first bridge, and that made a difference," Gould said.

McHugh worked from the river's banks and built temporary access structures, including a temporary bridge, to deliver materials and perform work while maintaining the river's flow, said Gould. While building the new eastbound span, McHugh persevered through a 500-year flood event and two 100-year flood events. As a result, the team was better prepared for the changing dynamics of the Fox River during construction of the westbound bridge.
Demolition, which was not a part of the first bridge, posed an even greater challenge. To keep the bridge balanced and stable during demolition, McHugh had to reduce the weight on the bridge deck as much as possible, and then demolish each arch "barrel" from north to south, carefully reducing the width of each arch while maintaining its stability, Gould said.

If a standard general contracting method had been used, the bridge may have taken three times as long to build, according to Mike Gould, McHugh project manager. The project also required significant coordination between the city, Knight, McHugh and six different property owners, Gould added.
