Central Valley Manufacture Casting Largest Girders
in California State History for High-Speed Rail Project
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Con-Fab California is a Central Valley manufacturer of structural precast, prestressed concrete located in Lathrop, California. They are under contract to build all girders for bridges and overpasses within Construction Package 1, the first 32-miles of the California high-speed rail project. That includes what Con-Fab says are the largest girders ever cast in California.
In the video below, Con-Fab Chief Engineer Brent Koch explains the company’s role in the high-speed rail project, just how big these girders are and how they are all-American made. The beams featured in the video will be used to construct a bridge at Avenue 9 in Madera County. While they may be record breakers now, these girders won’t hold that record for long. Con-Fab will build even larger girders for high-speed rail in the near future.
With more than 119 miles of active construction in the Central Valley, construction of a high-speed rail line between the Silicon Valley and Central Valley is planned for passenger service beginning in 2025. Learn more at www.BuildHSR.com.
