Case Study: Rehabilitating the Congress Parkway

The Project
Walsh Construction lifts and lowers 112’ bridge leafs on the Congress Parkway Bascule Bridge with rented air-powered winches, sheave blocks, and telemetry crane scales from Lifting Gear Hire (LGH).

The Lifting Challenge
Rehabilitating and reconstructing a 60 year old bridge can sound pretty daunting, especially if it hasn’t experienced significant repairs since its creation. And that’s exactly what Walsh Construction had to do for the Congress Parkway Bascule Bridge in Chicago, IL.
