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.
There is a lot of activity at the Avenue 12 overcrossing, just east of Madera Community College. Workers recently poured the eastern abutment for the crossing over the BNSF rail line. The abutment forms will be removed after the concrete has cured. To the west, crews are forming the abutment footings for the bridge substructure on the segment of the crossing that will carry Avenue 12 traffic over the high-speed rail tracks.
Construction began in February 2017 and is expected to be finished in mid-2018.
