Construction is currently underway on an overcrossing that will take Avenue 12 traffic over future high-speed and existing BNSF rail lines outside the town of Madera, eliminating the need for the existing at-grade crossing.
On the north side of Avenue 12 a little east of Madera Community College.
Initial paving has been completed on the west side of the Avenue 12 overcrossing, leading up to the high-speed rail overcrossing bridge section. Meanwhile crews are at work on the crossing over the BNSF freight lines at the east end of the structure. There, workers tie rebar for a section of the barrier walls off the sides of the abutment. The overcrossing east of Madera Community College will carry Avenue 12 traffic over the high-speed rail line and eliminate the existing freight rail crossing.
