The latest information on project activities, road closures, and detours.
On Monday, November 24, crews are expected to begin demolition and removal of the raised concrete bench/barbeque area along Girard Road near the Tower Residences. Crews will also begin removal of the retaining wall and stairway next to the dirt parking area north of Edie Road. This work is expected to last up to two weeks and will pause after Wednesday, November 26 for the Thanksgiving holiday, resuming on Monday, December 1.
A drainage improvement project is being proposed to extend and enlarge a drainage pipe (Outfall IJKL) at the west end of Crissy Field.
The National Park Service (NPS) is requesting public feedback, questions and comments on this project by Friday, December 12, 2014. Comments may be submitted online or mailed to GGNRA Superintendent, Bldg. 201, Fort Mason, San Francisco, CA 94123, Attn: IJKL Stormwater Outfall.
The proposed project would modify and extend the existing pipe further into the bay, alleviating ongoing flooding problems in Crissy Field, Mason Street and the surrounding area. Currently, sand buildup caused by tides and weather buries the existing pipe and necessitates frequent excavation. For additional details, please view the NPS website.
During the week of November 17, there will be utility work along Girard Road near Edie Road and at the Lincoln Boulevard intersection. During much of this activity, there will be no access to Edie Road from Girard Road, with occasional traffic control at the Girard Road and Lincoln Boulevard intersection. To access the parking lot behind Thoreau Center, use the signed detour, or use Tourney Avenue to O’Reilly Avenue.
Tree relocation and vegetation removal are underway along Lincoln Boulevard to create space for the future widened Girard roadway and Lincoln Boulevard intersection. Additional preparation activities along Girard Road will include removal of light poles, installation of temporary light poles, demolition of the raised concrete bench/barbeque area and removal of the stairway next to the dirt parking area off of Edie Road at Girard Road.

The future Girard Road will provide direct access to the Presidio and Marina from Doyle Drive. Beginning in August and continuing through the end of the year, construction activity along Girard Road will ramp up as crews prepare to widen the roadway, construct a median and build continuous sidewalks and bicycle lanes. Prior to roadway construction, preconstruction activities will include utility relocation, vegetation removal and concrete and asphalt removal.
