In March, crews completed the lower deck of the Kimberlina Viaduct by placing 560 cubic-yards of concrete in the span of seven hours. Crews will start working on the stem walls by continuing to tie rebar and placing concrete throughout the spring. When complete, the Kimberlina Viaduct will be 110-feet long and will take high-speed trains over traffic.

Just south of the Wasco Viaduct, the Kimberlina Viaduct continues to take shape. Ironworkers are beginning to tie rebar for the deck of the structure. Concrete for the abutments and wingwalls have already been placed and concrete for the lower deck will be poured in the coming months.

Kimberlina Road is now closed between Shafter Avenue and State Route 43 in Kern County for work on the Kimberlina Viaduct. The abutment walls are up and crews are now preparing to begin work on the superstructure that will carry high-speed trains over Kimberlina Road. When complete, the viaduct will span 110-feet long.

Concrete trucks are staged at Kimberlina Road near SR 43 where workers are placing concrete into the shafts of the foundation of the viaduct structure. Nearby, crews are continuing to drill additional shafts where rebar will eventually be placed. This viaduct will be approximately 117-feet in length and 110-feet wide when complete.
