Delivery: Phase I was completed using California’s conventional highway project delivery method called design-bid-build. For this option, project financing is provided solely by public agencies.
Spring 2012: Traffic Shift/ Weekend Closure of Doyle Drive
Upon completion of Phase I construction, Doyle Drive was closed for a weekend in order to shift traffic onto the newly completed southbound structures and temporary bypass.
2012 - 2015: Construction of Phase II
Construction: Phase II construction includes a new northbound bridge, northbound Battery Tunnel, the Main Post Tunnels and the new Girard Road/Marina Boulevard/Richardson Avenue interchange.
Traffic: Traffic will travel on the completed southbound structures and temporary bypass road while the Phase II structures are built.
Delivery: Phase II will be delivered through the public-private partnership method, which shifts responsibility for completing design and construction to a private concessionaire and makes use of long-term financing. This option also transfers responsibility for operating and maintaining the facility to the private concessionaire for 30 years.
2015: Traffic Shift/ Weekend Closure of Doyle Drive
Upon completion of Phase II construction, Doyle Drive will be closed for a second weekend in order to shift traffic off of the temporary condition and onto the final Presidio Parkway.
