The latest information on project activities, road closures, and detours.
Beginning the week of April 5, for approximately four weeks, crews will conduct daytime electrical work at the Gorgas Avenue/Richardson Avenue intersection to retrofit the intersection with pedestrian pushbutton crosswalk signalization and other upgrades. Initial work activities will include saw-cutting and removal and replacement of concrete. Crews will also install new electrical pull boxes and cabinets. This work may produce occasional noise.
The Presidio Parkway final design provides new connections from the Presidio to Crissy Field for pedestrians and bicyclists to enjoy. In addition to continuous sidewalks and bicycle lanes along Girard Road opening in late September, future landscaping and increased green space will create opportunities for outdoor recreation for years to come.
After closing for 71 hours on July 9-12, the new Doyle Drive was opened to traffic, eight hours earlier than expected! Several hundred workers placed over 2,800 tons of concrete, and removed more than 15,000 tons of materials, during the accident-free weekend.
Although a great new stretch of highway is now open, there’s more to be done to finish the project. Construction activity will continue into mid-2016 and will include removing the temporary bypass, restoring and reconfiguring portions of the east end, covering the tunnels, reconstructing Halleck Street and installing landscaping.
