CBBEL was part of the Bowman, Barrett & Associates Project Team selected by the Canadian National (CN) Railway to prepare Phase I engineering and environmental studies for the proposed reconstruction and widening of the existing railroad bridges over the Des Plaines River, Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, and I&M Canal near Crest Hill in Will County.  Permitting requirements of agencies including the Corps of Engineers, US Coast Guard, and IDNR-OWR were determined.  The CBBEL Drainage Department completed three separate waterway Hydraulic Reports based on the requirements of the IDNR-OWR Part 3700, 3708, and 3704 (Public Waters) requirements and coordinated with the structural engineer for creation of TS&L plans.
