BB&A provided construction management services for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of Milwaukee Avenue from Montrose to Kilpatrick Streets in Chicago, IL. This included the Six Corners Intersection of Milwaukee, Cicero and Irving Park.

The scope of work for this project included but was not limited to:

  • Roadway rehabilitation and reconstruction
  • Sidewalk replacement including ADA ramps
  • Installation of ornamental lighting
  • Sewer lining and/or replacement
  • Traffic signal modernization and interconnects
  • Streetscape elements and landscaping

Aesthetic improvements designed to strengthen the community included the addition of architectural gateways, kiosks, light pole banners and sidewalk medallions, all of which featured the Six Corners logo.  Hundreds of new trees, shrubs and flowers were added to new pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete planters.  These planters were installed along the sidewalks of Irving Park Road and in the median of Cicero Avenue.  Benches, bike racks and waste receptacles were also added to encourage pedestrian traffic.

Coordination and scheduling were crucial during the staged reconstruction of the six way intersection.  Traffic counts averaged 90,000 cars per day and nearly 400 local business owners were affected across the three arterial and sixteen surface streets. 

Additional stakeholders included the Illinois Department of Transportation, 38th & 45th Wards and The Six Corners Business Association. 

The contractor was awarded “Contractor of the Year” by the City of Chicago for delivering the project on time and under budget.
