Green Tree Blvd. Bridge Opens ... BUT ... Victorville, CA
Posted by croteaudd on Thursday, June 1, 2023 11:32 PM

The much anticipated Green Tree Blvd. Bridge by BNSF's "Natural Crossover" (Cajon Sub, M.P. 39.1) opened less than two weeks ago.  A boon for locals, but train photographers may be disappointed.  Sidewalks have not been put in, so the place has a 'something is wrong' sort of look.  One positive to the bridge is that sidewalks have a concrete wall between the bridge roadway and sidewalks.  If nothing else, that should give visiting forumites a sense it is a safe place.

Here are the Google Maps coordinates to copy and paste to your browser:

(34.5003945, -117.2827193)

The bridge is erected in this map view but not yet open to traffic.

it is due south (railroad west) of the natural crossover.

About time they got it done.

Building a bridge to extend Green Tree Blvd over the tracks was talked about as "Coming Soon" the whole time I was stationed out at George AFB outside Victorvile.  And I was stationed there from 1985 until 1992.

Another 31 years since I left the area to take the idea from concept to fruition is ABYSMAL.
