88th Avenue Reconstruction | Cook County Highway Department

Knight provided design engineering services for the reconstruction of 88th Avenue from 111th Street to 87th Street in Cook County, Illinois. The improvement provided three 12-foot lanes, one in each direction with a median turning lane, and a complete closed drainage system with curb and gutter. This project required extensive drainage studies to develop solutions to frequent flooding issues through the corridor and surrounding areas. Knight Phase I work led to two Phase II contracts including the addition of sidewalks on both sides of the road, storm sewer design, traffic signals at two intersections, detention basin design, roadway lighting and other related road work.
