Joliet Multi-Modal Transportation Center

Project Description

The City of Joliet is developing a new Multi-Modal Transportation Center in downtown Joliet.  GSG was selected to support the design team by providing geotechnical services for the project. GSG completed multiple geotechnical investigation projects, including the following:

  • Three Parking Lots
  • St. Louis Road Widening
  • Five-Story Parking Structure
  • Union Pacific Embankment Retaining Walls
  • Union Pacific/Metra Bridges and Embankment Platforms
  • Detention Basin


The geotechnical investigation work included advancing soil borings for each construction package.  The scope of the drilling services for each contract was coordinated with the client. GSG also completed laboratory testing and engineering analysis and prepared a geotechnical investigation report providing recommendations regarding foundation systems and soil allowable bearing capacity as well as construction considerations.

GSG provided expedient, quality service in order to keep the project moving forward within project schedule. GSG prepared several geotechnical reports and provided design recommendations for the proposed development. GSG’s ability to coordinate with the owner, design team, and jurisdictional entities in a timely manner and ability to work quickly with a flexible schedule allowed the investigation to be completed on time.
