Garces Highway Viaduct


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.

In mid-December construction package 4 design-build contractor California Rail Builders took the day to pour concrete and form the first deck of the Garces Highway viaduct in Kern County.
