Imperial Works on Rehab of Historical Congress Parkway Bridge

congressChicago, IL – Imperial Crane is currently working on stage one of the 33 million dollar rehabilitation project of the historical Congress Parkway Bridge. Built in the 1950’s it is 220 feet in length, located over the south branch of the Chicago River.

Imperial was hired by Omega Demolition and Walsh Construction to begin removal of the current open grid deck of the bridge which will be replaced with a closed deck system. Two 115 ton Liebherrs were used to complete the dismantle.

With such a high profile job it is important to work with the right crew. Dan DeLarosa of Omega chooses Imperial because of the quality of their operators. “I have always had safe experiences with Imperial’s employees. An appropriate and qualified operator is matched to the job. It is important for me to feel confident that a professional expert is in the seat.”

The completion of the project will ensure the Congress Parkway Bridge will be an Chicago landmark for years to come.
