New Bridge in Fresno Makes Way for High Speed Rail
"It’s about eight months later than originally expected, but the California High-Speed Rail Authority is finally ready to open the new Tuolumne Street railroad overcrossing in downtown Fresno," reports Tim Sheehan. A ribbon cutting for the new bridge took place on August 4, 2017, opening the bridge to motorists later that day. Delays in the project were blamed on the exceptionally rainy year in California.
"The bridge spans from Broadway to the east and F street on the west, and will carry drivers over the Union Pacific Railroad freight tracks and the future high-speed rail line," adds Sheehan.
