Washington Street Culvert Emergency Repair | City of Waukegan, IL

Ciorba Group is providing design and construction engineering services to the City of Waukegan for emergency repairs after the collapse of a 114 year old culvert carrying the Waukegan River under Washington Street.  Washington Street, a main thoroughfare through the City, quickly failed over the culvert, creating a large crater in the pavement. The street will be closed to all traffic while the repairs are in The culvert, which was built in 1904, is a 10’ diameter arch made of hand placed limestone blocks and is 40 feet below Washington Street. The culvert likely deteriorated quickly due to its age, type of construction, and recent storms. More at Chicago Tribune: https://trib.in/2N9FcTu
