Metra Englewood Flyover Project

Metra Englewood Flyover Project

Angelo Construction provided field construction oversight of the demolition phase of this project, including removal of existing structures, traffic control on IL Interstate 94 and coordination with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA).

This project which includes a new Metra bridge carrying 78 weekday Rock Island Line trains over the tracks used by approximately 60 freight and 14 Amtrak trains, is being hailed as a milestone in Chicago rail history as its benefits include: eliminating conflicts between Rock Island, Amtrak and freight trains which are a significant source of train delays, improving air quality for area residents by cutting emissions from idling trains, and eliminating noise from idling trains.
