By Bob Okon – March 10, 2021
Construction of the Houbolt Road bridge is expected to start within the next couple of weeks. “We’re a full go as of today,” Michael Murphy, chief development officer for CenterPoint Properties said Tuesday. Murphy said a construction trailer should be on the site “in the next couple of days. … It will take a week or so to go to work.”
CenterPoint Properties is a partner in the private joint venture that will build the toll bridge over the Des Plaines River. “We anticipate completion in the spring of 2023,” Murphy said.
