In north Fresno, crews are hard at work at the Veterans and Golden State Boulevard part of the second phase of the City of Fresno’s Veterans Boulevard Interchange and Corridor Improvement Project.
On both sides of Golden State Boulevard, crews have completed pile driving and column work for the substructure of the grade separation. Crews also completed work on the mechanically-stabilized earth (MSE) walls and are now working on the abutment caps and bent caps. Crews have also begun installing the falsework for the superstructure.
When complete, the Veterans Boulevard Project will include a grade separation taking traffic over the Union Pacific Railroad, Golden State Boulevard and future high-speed rail lines. The structure will include two spans and will be more than 294-feet long and 132-feet wide.
This City of Fresno improvement project is partially funded by the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
