Fresno River Viaduct


The 1,600-foot structure will carry high speed trains over the Fresno River and State Route 145 outside of the town of Madera.


Between Raymond Road and Watson Street in Madera County, crossing State Route 145 and the Fresno River, parallel to the BNSF railroad tracks.


The first major construction on the California High-Speed Rail Project began in summer 2015 at the Fresno River Viaduct in Madera County. That work is now largely complete, with the exception of some minor concrete patchwork. This structure is approximately 1,600-feet and will carry high-speed trains over the Fresno River and State Route 145.
