The first phase of work being performed will construct an underpass for Tulare Street traffic that will run below high-speed rail tracks and eliminate the current at-grade crossing for Union Pacific Railroad. The second phase of work will construct the new G Street crossing that will run adjacent to high-speed and Union Pacific rail lines, crossing over Tulare Street.
On Tulare Street in downtown Fresno, between G and H Streets next to Chukchansi Park.
Pavement has been removed and excavation has begun for phase one. Among the first activities performed will be the creation of a temporary rail bypass called a “shoofly” that allows freight trains to continue to operate across Tulare Street while the permanent undercrossing is being constructed.
Construction began in October 2017 and could take as long as two years to complete.
