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.
On Road 27 between Club Drive and Avenue 17 near Madera Acres.
Crews are installing rebar while constructing a retaining wall for the Road 27 overcrossing in Madera County. The crossing will take traffic over high-speed rail tracks and the existing freight lines north of the town of Madera. Once the retaining wall is in place, fill dirt will be trucked in to raise the road surface to cross over the rails. An access road will be built on the north side of the retaining wall to allow nearby residents to access their property.
Construction began in October 2016 and is expected to be finished in late 2017.
