Epstein was recently hired to provide Phase I and Phase II engineering services for the development of a strategic system-wide Master Plan to include LEED certified structures, site specific master plans, and phased repair plans for the Illinois Tollway's maintenance facilities.
As a part of the ‘Move Illinois’ Program, the Tollway is reconstructing and rehabilitating its aging maintenance facilities. The program entails the design and construction documents for two sizes of maintenance facilities, master plans for 10 other sites, and facility assessments of all sites on a two-year re-occurring basis. Epstein is also assessing the suitability of new sites including working with the Tollway’s site acquisition department for new sites for M-8, M-4, and the Elgin O’Hare Western Access project. The project will also assess the current condition of the existing facilities and develop contract plans to keep them in a state of good repair until they are reconstructed or rehabilitated.
