TranSystems Awarded ACEC-Illinois Eminent Conceptor Award for the CREATE P1 - Englewood Flyover
TranSystems Corporation as the lead designer, along with Benesch as construction manager, have earned the Eminent Conceptor award for the CREATE P1 – Englewood Flyover project. This is the highest honor given to a project by the American Council of Engineering Companies Illinois chapter. 

The CREATE P1 - Englewood Flyover is the first major project constructed to separate freight and passenger trains as part of the Chicago Region Environmental and Transportation Efficiency program, which was initiated to reduce the rail congestion that plagues Chicago. 

Before construction, the Englewood Interlocking railroad crossing handled 80 Metra trains crossing 46 Norfolk Southern freight trains and 14 Amtrak passenger trains each day. By constructing a 2,100-foot long triple track flyover bridge, the Interlocking crossing was eliminated alleviating congestion, expediting rail traffic flow and improving safety and air quality.

The $133 million project was completed on-schedule, meeting the requirements of the federal HSR grant. The construction of a complex railroad bridge project in an urban setting without additional right of-way, under-budget and on-time is rarely accomplished.

TranSystems, with a long history of railroad engineering and flyover design, led the preliminary and final design activities, including preparing environmental clearances, construction drawings, specifications, schedules and estimates. Major subconsultants for the design included Bowman, Barrett & Associates and Rubinos & Mesia Engineers.
