Anderson Road Bridge Ribbon Cutting is Held
The ribbon cutting for the Anderson Road bridge in Elburn, IL was held this week. The project provides a key north-south transportation link for vehicular access to the Metra commuter station and relieve congestion along Illinois Route 47 by providing a grade separation option over the railroad tracks.
Coordinating between the contractors, Metra and Union Pacific Railroads during this $14 million construction project was instrumental in providing a safe and efficient process.
In addition to the bridge, a new two-lane roadway now links Illinois Route 38 to Keslinger Road in Elburn. The extension consists of approximately 1.6 miles of new and reconstructed roadway. The project also included nearly one mile of associated improvements to Keslinger Road, Hicks Drive and Prairie Valley Street as well as the realignment of the existing access roadway to the Elburn Metra commuter station.
