The Wasco Viaduct will take high-speed trains over the existing BNSF freight tracks and is one of 14 structures planned for Construction Package 4.
The Wasco Viaduct is beginning construction on the south side of town at Jackson Avenue.
At the Wasco Viaduct, crews are drilling and placing shafts on the east side of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe that will ultimately support a pergola allowing high-speed train to pass over the existing freight tracks. Crews are now guiding cages down to connect to ground anchors. On the west side of the BNSF, 26 columns of the pergola section have been poured. This structure will be nearly a mile long when complete.
