Garces Highway Viaduct

Overview

The crossing will take high speed trains over Garces Highway. The viaduct will be approximately 102-feet in length, 52-feet wide, with abutments at each end of the structure, and vertical clearance of just over 15 feet. Garces Highway will remain at-grade, and Scofield Avenue will be realigned to become parallel to the high-speed rail alignment.

Location

At Garces Highway in Kern County, about three miles west of State Route 43 near Scofield Avenue.

Currently

At Garces Highway in Kern County, carpenters are building falsework to stabilize the deck of the Garces structure and prepare for upcoming concrete placement. This structure, located near State Route 43 and Scofield Avenue, will take high-speed trains over Garces Highway and eventually realign Scofield Avenue to become parallel to the high-speed rail alignment.
