F.H. Paschen accepted the 2019 Infrastructure Construction Award from the Chicago Building Congress (CBC) for the Chicago Department of Transportation 41st Street Pedestrian Bridge.
The 1,470-foot pedestrian bridge spans over Lake Shore Drive and connects Chicago’s Bronzeville Neighborhood to the lakefront. The project’s construction consisted of the removal and reconstruction of pedestrian paths, bike trails and sidewalks, roadway lighting relocation, and furnishing and installing lighting on the bridge structure.
The cultural and community significance of the bridge was highlighted in the Chicago Tribune.
This award joins the Illinois Road and Transportation Builders Association (IRTBA) Contractor of the Year honor for the construction of the 41st Street Pedestrian Bridge.
