Document Description
The Berryessa Creek culvert is a shared project between the VTA and the Santa Clara Valley Water District. The Freight Railroad Relocation Project would not require the creek to be realigned; however, as a part of a future SCVWD flood control project the creek must be widened and realigned. The entire multi-cell structure is planned to be built in concert with the Freight Railroad Reloction Project. The scope of work at Berryessa Creek includes constructing temporary tracks, to facilitate the construction of the multiple cell box culvert for Berryessa Creek, utility relocations, channel reconnection work, retrofitting the Abel Street bridge footings, and seismically retrofitting the Abel Street Bridge. The existing creek bottom outside the work limits will remain undisturbed.
