Fresno Trench & SR 180 Passageway

A little north of downtown Fresno, workers on the State Route 180 trench are putting the finishing touches on the walls inside the undercrossing, while others excavate the area outside where the trains will start to come back to grade. Work has slowed due to the wet winter weather, but is about to begin construction on the “floor” of the concrete box that will carry trains under the highway, a rail spur and the Dry Creek Canal. Ultimately, the trench will extend approximately 1 mile in length.
