Wacker Drive Program Manager

City of Chicago, Illinois

TranSystems was selected by the Chicago Department of Transportation to perform Program Manager Services for the reconstruction of the north-south section of the multi-level Wacker Drive and the Congress Parkway Interchange. The assignment involved the oversight and administration of four distinct construction contracts valued at $303 million, as well as replacement of a half-mile section of an eight-lane double decker arterial; innovative pre-stressed bridge construction; replacement of the interchange with Congress Parkway; construction of various tunnel sections; replacement of a 12-foot diameter sewer outfall; aesthetic upgrades to roadway lighting, green spaces, parkways and decorative railing/finishes; and coordinating private utility relocation agreements and various City force account work orders .This roadway and bridge project was one of the most complicated ever completed by the City since it involved complex staging to keep 60,000 vehicles and a staggering 150,000 pedestrians moving through the construction zone daily. The project was recognized with the Grand Conceptor Award, the highest honor that can be bestowed for excellence in engineering achievement, by the American Council of Engineering Companies.
