Train Platform

Scope

Michels worked in close proximity to live freight and pedestrian rail traffic and overhead rail signal lines to construct a temporary pedestrian train platform across the street from Silver Cross Field in Illinois. Michels used an excavator-mounted, high-reach vibratory hammer to install 460 linear feet of driven sheet pile within 20 feet of the live rail traffic. Michels also drove 12 3/4-inch diameter pipe pile to rock using a crane with swinging leads and a hydraulic hammer to support a prefabricated ramp to access the platform.

Projects

Michels designed and installed an Earth Retention System (ERS) for a new pedestrian tunnel that was bored under three live Metra and Union Pacific rail lines.
