The structure will relocate a section of Avenue 7– straightening out a bend in the road and carrying traffic over the high-speed rail line.
Avenue 7 north of the San Joaquin River Viaduct just east of State Route 99.
At Avenue 7 and Road 33 in Madera County, a crane set 10 concrete girders to begin construction of the upper portion of the bridge known as the superstructure. Each girder was 110 feet long and weighed about 105,000 pounds. This crossing will straighten out a bend in Avenue 7 while realigning Road 33 and allowing traffic to cross over the high-speed rail tracks east of State Route 99.
Construction began in fall of 2017 and will continue through late 2018.
