The latest information on project activities, road closures, and detours.
Beginning in late September and continuing through October, restoration and striping work is expected at the Gorgas Avenue/Richardson Avenue intersection.
On Wednesday, September 21, traffic control is scheduled along McDowell Avenue beneath the High Viaduct and at the intersection with Crissy Field Avenue/Mason Street. Traffic control is required for crews to perform potholing work to verify utility line locations. Drivers can expect intermittent delays.
Beginning the week of September 19 and continuing for approximately three months, work is scheduled to restore full operations to various parking lots in the Presidio. This work will commence with reconstruction of the parking lot behind the Mason Street warehouses after grading and utility installation. Additionally, the parking lot behind the Gorgas Avenue warehouses will be reconstructed.
Beginning in mid-September, crews will prepare to relocate Building 201 and reconstruct the southern portion of Halleck Street, kicking off overall reconstruction of the Halleck Street streetscape. This work is expected to continue through early 2017.
The Presidio Parkway project team has been working hard to address design, environmental and regulatory approvals for the final elements of construction. Over the coming months, Doyle Drive and the Presidio will be a beehive of activity, with site restoration, paving and landscaping occurring across the corridor. Upcoming work (daytime, Monday-Friday, and occasional Saturday and night work) will lay the groundwork for the Presidio Tunnel Tops, the project team’s shared vision for a magnificent 14-acre landscape that integrates the San Francisco Bay waterfront with the Presidio’s historic Main Post district. Please reach out to the Public Information Office with any questions (contact information on second page), and thank you for your patience during construction!
Beginning Monday, August 22 for approximately three weeks, there will be one-way traffic along Graham Street, French Court and Halleck Street behind the Transit Café and Fire Station, near the Observation Post.
Beginning in mid-August and continuing through October, crews will perform various restoration activities along Girard Road and Marina Boulevard.
Beginning September 18, for approximately one week, lane closures and night work are expected along southbound Highway 101 near the Highway 1 interchange for crews to deliver and install a segment of permanent barrier rail.
Increased truck traffic in the project area is scheduled through early October. Trucks will import material to the work area north of the Main Post Tunnels. This trucking traffic is expected to occur every weekday during normal work hours.
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.
