California High-Speed Rail Construction Package 4 BNSF Shoofly in Wasco
Here is a short video showing current construction of the Poso Avenue Shoofly that JMA designed as part of the California High-Speed Rail Program’s Construction Package 4 (CP4), supporting the design-build contractor, California Rail Builders – a joint venture between Ferrovial Construction and Griffith Company.
JMA led the design of two adjacent shooflies of BNSF mainline for California High-Speed Rail’s CP4 in Wasco. Working closely with BNSF, a single long shoofly was modified to two shorter shooflies, which includes the Poso Avenue Shoofly seen here. Construction is underway and set to be completed this Summer.
In addition to designing over 32,000 feet of new mainline and shoofly tracks, JMA coordinated all utility relocation submittals with BNSF (45 applications), designed a 15,000-foot relocation of Level 3 fiber line through Wasco, and led the CPUC applications for 14 new and modified crossings. JMA additionally performed independent technical review of the High-Speed Train and associated project drainage for a 3-mile segment through Wasco.
