BNSF Bridge


BNSF Bridge

The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway bridges across Antelope Creek near the southwest corner of State Fair Park. It consisted of two structures built in the early 1900's and a third structure constructed in 1998. The older bridges were replaced with new two-span structures to improve water flow, and the third bridge was modified from a three-span to a two-span structure to match the newly constructed bridges.

All of the bridge construction work was done by BNSF forces and was completed by July 7, 2005. The pier pilings have been encased with concrete and the channel lined with concrete slope protection by the Big 'T' contractor (Hawkins Construction Co.). A new trail will also pass under the railroad allowing bicycle/pedestrian movements to avoid the conflicts with trains.
