Stearns Road Corridor
over the Fox River, Kane County
OMEGA provided construction engineering services for the Kane County Division of Transportation’s $25 million Stearns Road Contract over the Fox River near South Elgin. The 18-month project included construction of a 5-span, steel plate girder main bridge, a combination steel truss and precast concrete pedestrian bridge and ramp, over two miles of new concrete pavement, signalized intersections and lighting, and extensive below ground and open channel drainage systems.
The work was performed under a stringent set of environmental commitments, and OMEGA’s personnel were responsible for ensuring permit compliance to a wide variety of government agencies including the Army Corps of Engineers. OMEGA was also instrumental in assisting the contractor with devising alternate methods of caisson construction and testing due to complex geological conditions in the river bed.
