Description: Construction services for Ameren’s Baldwin to Rush Island, IL project included 28 miles of 345kV single circuit transmission line and a 2,800 foot Mississippi River crossing that required five enormous 400’ steel lattice structures with 10’ x 10’ foundations for each leg. Floods in the spring and summer of 2010 increased our equipment requirements, allowing us to complete the project on schedule with the same level of manpower.
Completion Date: November 2010
Work Performed By: The L.E. Myers Co. (L.E. Myers), a subsidiary of MYR Group
