On Tuesday, June 9, Long Grove’s historic 114-year-old Robert Parker Coffin Road bridge was lowered back into place over Buffalo Creek.
The bridge was removed in March to accommodate renovations to the abutments and its signature wooden cover, which was damaged by a truck in 2018. Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick’s Structural Engineer, Scott Shoup, PE, SE, designed the lifting plan for the project constructed by Alliance Contractors Inc. The project is slated for completion in early July and we look forward to seeing the bridge make a full recovery.
