Stearns Road Corridor


Kane County Division of Transportation


South Elgin, Illinois
OMEGA provided construction engineering services for the Kane County Division of Transportation’s $25 million Stearns Road Project over the Fox River near South Elgin.

Project Scope

The work was performed under a stringent set of environmental commitments, and OMEGA’s personnel were responsible for ensuring permit compliance with 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.

The project included construction of a 5-span, steel plate girder main bridge, and a combination steel truss and precast concrete pedestrian bridge and ramp.
