Hillsdale & Esskay team up to build a challenging Red-Purple Bridge in Chicago, Illinois

Esskay has been associated with Hillsdale Fabricators of Saint Louis as their detailing partner in many Pedestrian bridge projects over the last 10 years. Most of the projects had a very unique design, complex geometries, and a challenge to detail & fabricate. These projects have won many awards for their excellence under tough site conditions and challenging design! The 41st Street Pedestrian Bridge in Chicago won the AISC award for the best bridge under the Special Purpose Bridges category for 2020!

We are proud to be associated with Hillsdale on yet another complex project, the Red-Purple Bridge in Chicago for the Walsh Group. This project was showcased as a cover-page article in the Feb 2024 edition of Modern Steel Construction. Please click here to see the full cover page article on this project.

Team Esskay is grateful to the entire Project team of RPB, from Hillsdale throughout the detailing of this project. We are proud to be a part of this project and look forward to the challenging projects from Hillsdale in the future.
