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.
