salt dome site plan

The City of Chicago is building an $8 million salt dome at 2555 W. Grand Ave., to replace the existing salt pile at the site.

Public Building Commission (PBC) officials say the project will not increase traffic congestion in the area, but will be designed with enhanced landscaping to fit in with the neighbourhood, including a park across the street. It includes a 60,000 ft. dome, and related storage buildings, with resources to handle run-off water and manage truck traffic at the site. The work is expected to be completed by Sept. 30.

The general contractor is the George Sollitt Construction Company. Subtrades include: Electric – Public Electric Construction; and masonry – Scurto Cement Company.
