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.
Most of the work at Cottonwood Creek Bridge is complete and preparatory work for the first section of high-speed rail
embankment or guideway is underway. This work will involve a significant amount of earthwork to create a berm that carries 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.
