Overview

A grade separation for East American Avenue, taking traffic over the existing freight line and future high-speed rail lines.

Currently

Columns and abutments have been poured for the American Avenue overcrossing at the end of Construction Package 1, south of Fresno. While the column concrete hardens, crews will begin constructing the bent cap falsework for the section of the crossing that will carry traffic over the existing freight tracks and high-speed tracks.

Timeline

Construction began in June 2017 and is scheduled for completion in mid-2018.
