Cottonwood Creek Viaduct


The Cottonwood Creek Viaduct is a 250-foot long crossing that will carry high-speed trains over a creek bed in rural Madera County.


North of Avenue 13 and south of Avenue 15, crossing over Cottonwood Creek in Madera County parallel to the BNSF railroad tracks.


Barrier walls have now been poured, and as at the Fresno River Viaduct, much of the work for the Cottonwood Creek crossing is complete. To the north and south of Cottonwood, preparatory work will begin next for the first section of guideway. This involves specific earthwork to convey the high-speed train at-grade.


Work began in the summer of 2016 and crews are working to complete this bridge by the end of summer 2017.
