The City of Chicago
Following New York City and Los Angeles, Chicago is the third most populous city within the United States and the fifth largest city in the world! Chicago, one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S during the 19th century, was once greatly damaged in the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. After the fire, the population, once again, boomed. And soon, Chicago grew from 503,000 people, to more than a million, just within a decade! Chicago can be found along the southwestern shores of Lake Michigan, in the northeastern part of the state of Illinois. Chicago is a place centered around a lot of different areas of the economy, such as: finance, culture, commerce, telecommunications, technology, education, and industry. Some of the things the many, many tourists enjoy tend to include: film, theater, food, dance, literature, comedy, and music. We provide concrete barrier blocks in Chicago, Illinois.

We provide bin blocks in Chicago, IL. Specially selected for this area, we have one type of block available, coming in a few different sizes. The block available is what we call a v-wedge block. This block comes with two sets of v-wedges. One set has wedges located on the top and side of the block, while the other, reverse set of wedges are located on the bottom and other side of the block. These blocks are specially designed to make movement of the blocks easy, so they have a rebar handle loop located atop the block in order to do so. All you need to do is attach a chain to the block for relocation and placement. The sizes of this v-wedge block we provide include a 6’ x 2’ x 2’, a 4’ x 2’ x 2’, and a 3’ x 2’ x 2’. The 6’ block weighs about 3,600lbs and 13 of them can fit per typical semi trailer bed. The 4’ block weighs about 2,400lbs and 18 of them can fit per typical semi trailer bed. And lastly, the 3’ block weighs about 1,800lbs and 26 of them can fit per typical semi truck bed. If you have any questions about these blocks, please give us a call. Again, our number is: 217-478-5060
So, we’ve discussed how we provide concrete barrier blocks in Chicago, what names concrete blocks can have, and what specific blocks we offer for Chicago. Now, we will talk about the different purposes these concrete blocks can serve. Some of the basic, more common ways our blocks have been used include: road district material storage, parking lot and/or traffic management, utilities protection, property separation/privacy, concrete retaining walls, anchor weights for tents, fuel and/or propane tank security, storage bins, and general weight. If you have used concrete blocks in any other ways or have any ideas on how to further their use, please let us know and we can add to our list of uses!
So, now we will answer the question of, “How do I receive my blocks?” We offer two different methods of transportation: delivery or pick up. But, both of these methods require a little bit of help on your end. Starting with delivery, on your delivery site, you must have proper equipment ready to offload the concrete blocks once they arrive. Your equipment must be able to carry weight up to 3,600, 2,400, or 1,800lbs, depending on what type of block being delivered. And because the blocks are all 2’ in height and the trailer bed is typically 5’ in height, your equipment must also be able to reach a height of 7’+ in order to properly reach and lift the blocks. Lastly, your site must have the adequate amount of space available in order for the delivery semi to enter and exit the area. If you do not have enough space available, we can discuss dropping off the blocks at a different area with more space and then using smaller machinery to transport the blocks to the actual site. Now, we will discuss pick up. For getting started with pick up, you will need to give our faculty a call and one of us will set you up with a date and time to come visit our plant and receive your blocks. We will personally load the blocks onto the truck trailer for you, but we will ask that you bring along a set of chains and/or straps so we can safely secure the blocks to the trailer. If you have any questions or concerns regarding either of these transport methods, or anything to do with our blocks and business for that matter, please contact us! We would love to chat!
