WGI’s Geospatial Team is helping improve ecological productivity and reduce chronic erosion with the Franklin-98 Coastal Restoration Project.
Project Spotlight: O’Hare International Airport (Chicago, IL)
As part of the $8.5 Billion O’Hare 21 modernization project at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, WGI is supporting the design team by providing Subsurface Utility engineering (SUE) Quality Level A and B services for the O’Hare Lower Level Utility and Pavement Reconstruction (LLUPR) project. This project will relocate and reconstruct the domestic water main, ComEd duct bank and reconstruct the pavements at the arrivals area within Terminals One, Two, and Three.
WGI had two designating crews providing the utility designation and another two vacuum excavation crews working on the predetermined test hole locations. This work was completed while the terminals were active, which was challenging, especially for the vacuum excavation activities.
Our team carefully considered the safety of our crews and the public as there was a constant flow of foot traffic throughout the operations. Our crews did a great job of creating a work zone that kept everyone safe and completing the project without any incident. WGI has completed over 80,000 linear-foot of utility designation and 64 test holes to date within the schedule.
