Road 27 Overpass

Overview

Construction is currently underway on an overcrossing that will carry traffic over future high-speed and existing BNSF rail lines outside the town of Madera, eliminating an existing at grade crossing.

Location

On Road 27 between Club Drive and Avenue 17 near Madera Acres.

Currently

Excavation for the foundation of a retaining wall at Road 27 has begun at the north end of Construction Package 1, outside the city of Madera. With the retaining wall in place, fill dirt can be trucked-in to build an embankment that will take traffic over the existing railroad line and the future high-speed train corridor. Eventually, a frontage road will also be constructed alongside the embankment so adjacent property owners can have access around the crossing. Further north, the abutments and support piers are also progressing.

Timeline

Construction began in October 2016 and is expected to be finished in late 2017.
