At the Cedar Viaduct, construction crews have begun to extend the structure across State Route 99 (SR 99) south of Fresno. Drilling for support pier foundations is now well underway on either side of the highway and soon will also take place in the highway median. Shafts are being drilled nearly 90 feet deep and will be filled with rebar cages and concrete. The viaduct will eventually be connected to the Muscat Viaduct a little further to the south. One of the largest structures on Construction Package 1, the Cedar Viaduct will be about three-quarters of a mile long when it’s complete.
