Earlier this month, the Improve McHenry team reached another project milestone.
Construction crews completed the second concrete pour for the new western half of the McHenry Avenue bridge, project officials reported. A total of 96 trucks were required to deliver the 910 cubic yards of concrete to the project site.
Crews were able to complete the pour in just one day.
The McHenry Avenue Corridor Improvements Project is now 65 percent complete. Officials added that the project continues to progress on schedule, and is anticipated to be completed in 2020.
A social media contest run on the ‘Improve McHenry’ website sought guesses as to how many trucks would be needed to deliver the concrete. Ken Cornick was the winner, the first to guess that 96 trucks were required to deliver the 910 cubic yards of concrete for the latest Improve McHenry milestone.
Victor Wong, one of the county’s engineers, presented Cornick with a construction poster of the McHenry Avenue Bridge for being the winner of the contest.
