High Speed Rail Fresno

Fresno, California

VPI provided engineering and construction services to underground PG&E overhead electric lines as part of California High-Speed Rail Authority’s work to build a 119-mile stretch through the Central Valley. Three overpasses near power lines crossing Highway 99, city streets and Union Pacific railroads needed to be reconstructed to make room for the future high-speed rail. Crews were scaled up to meet compressed work schedules. The project required cooperation with multiple agencies and contractors including Union Pacific, Caltrans, City of Fresno, and Granite Construction.
