Document Description
The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (JPB), which operates the San Francisco Bay Area’s Caltrain passenger rail service, proposes the Guadalupe River Bridge Replacement Project in the City of San José, Santa Clara County, California. Caltrain operates on two bridges over the Guadalupe River, the 1935 MT-1 bridge and 1990 MT-2 bridge, each carrying a single track. The purpose of the project is to address the structural deficiencies of the MT-1 bridge and the geomorphic instability of the Guadalupe River channel in the vicinity of the MT-1 and MT-2 bridges to provide for long-term public safety and service reliability. The major elements of the project include replacement of the 1935 MT-1 bridge with a new 265-foot pre-cast concrete structure, extending the southern end of the MT-2 bridge by 90 feet, and widening the river channel to reduce the risk of scour and bank failure issues during storm events. Project construction will take place in a series of stages to maintain existing rail services, and is estimated to take approximately two years. Construction is anticipated to begin in Spring 2022 and end in Summer 2024.
