QUAD CITIES, IA – The I-74 Mississippi River Bridge project is featured in the latest edition of Civil Engineering Magazine, an American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) publication. Benesch Illinois Division Manager Andrew Keaschall co-authored the piece with Modjeski & Masters’ Thomas Murphy and Todd McMeans.

The I-74 project was a joint effort between the Iowa and Illinois DOTs and has significantly improved mobility for residents in the Quad Cities. Benesch was the prime consultant on the project, which included serving as corridor-wide design manager and engineer of record for many portions of the corridor on behalf of the Iowa and Illinois DOTs. Benesch also led design plans for the extended Central Sections of the project, which included the substructures that support the twin arch superstructure (designed by Modjeski & Masters) as well as the approach span superstructures and substructures at either end of the bridge.
