Overview 

The Illinois River Bridge Replacement at Utica, IL:  The Gateway to Starved Rock State Park

The “simple” three-span structure replacement built on rock spanning IL 178 over the Illinois River has been far from easy thus far.  The $25.5 million project has had its challenges and unique aspects during construction while in the heart of the historic Starved Rock Country.  Take a journey through the history of the area; the multi-modal transportation aspects of the region; while also battling through rock-blasting next to the existing bridge, cofferdams in bedrock, and the never ending struggle with Mother Nature and the mighty Illinois River.

Kyle Videgar is the Construction Engineer for the Illinois Department of Transportation, District 3.  He received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Bradley University.  Kyle oversees a construction program totally $350 million to $450 million annually utilizing an amazing staff.  Kyle has been with the Department for nearly 18 years and lives in LaSalle, IL.  He has two boys, Mason and Riley, that keep him busy coaching baseball in the summer and curling in the winter.
