Avenue 15 Grade Separation

Overview

The crossing will take Avenue 15 traffic over high-speed rail lines and existing freight lines.

Location

In Madera County, between Road 29 and Road 29 ½.

Currently

At Avenue 15, construction is underway again on the west side abutment wall and center pier. The 35-foot-tall west abutment was poured earlier this month. The formwork from the west abutment will next be moved over to the east abutment for crews to begin raising that structure out of the ground. The central pier has falsework around the columns and a rebar crew is tying the steel for the bent cap which will tie the two columns together. This two-span structure will take traffic over the future high-speed train and the existing BNSF freight rail alignment.
