HOME AVENUE PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE

Home Avenue Bridge is an important link for residents, especially school children.  Both middle schools are north of the Eisenhower Expressway. 

 

IDOT engineers say there are better grades of steel for bridges than when the expressway was constructed.  Beams supporting the bridge deck can be thinner, allowing a lower bridge clearance and longer spans mean fewer vertical supports.
