Construction of a new railroad bridge funded by the Recovery Act in San Jose, California is almost complete. The new bridge will replace an older lower bridge that blocked floodwater and often caused the Guadalupe River to flood and is scheduled to be completed in November 2011. This is the last piece of a decades-long U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) project to reduce flood risk for the city.

This bridge replacement project received American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) funds to replace four bridges on Silver Creek and MIddle Fork Payette River on the Emmett Ranger District of the Boise National Forest.
An Idaho contractor received the contractor to complete the work.
