Lincoln Yards South Site

Meade excavated and installed underground dry utility conduit encasements and street lighting along existing and new Concord Place for the Lincoln Yard South development.

Lincoln Yards South Site Development

Lincoln Yards is a vibrant new development that will connect Chicagoans to over 50 acres of riverfront sitting between some of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods: Bucktown, Wicker Park and Lincoln Park. The development of Lincoln Yards presents a defining moment for Chicago to improve a vast, underutilized parcel of land to benefit residents, businesses, and visitors.

Meade was awarded the first phase of Lincoln Yards South site development dry utility works in the spring of 2021, to install all the underground dry utility and new street lighting. Thus, bringing power and communications to the new Life Sciences building, future office and residential buildings.

Meade installed manholes and underground duct bank for ComEd, AT&T, and City Utilidor utility service providers. Work included 3 cast-in-place manholes with Earth Retention System shoring, 5 precast manholes, and concrete encased conduit packages. Street lighting installation included 7 new street light poles with future expansion to City smart grid technology. Installed 82,000 feet of underground conduit in roughly 1,500 linear feet of open cut trench and 6,200 cubic yards of excavation.
