The latest information on project activities, road closures, and detours.
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!
On Thursday, August 25, southbound Girard Road is scheduled to be closed between the southbound off-ramp from Highway 101/Doyle Drive and Edie Road from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
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 Monday, August 15 and continuing for approximately five to six weeks, lane closures and night work are scheduled along southbound Highway 101 from the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza to Highway 1/Presidio Parkway. Lane closures are required for crews to begin grade work along the embankment slope adjacent to southbound Highway 101 in preparation for final landscaping.
Increased truck traffic in the project area is scheduled for approximately the next four weeks. 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. Intermittently, trucks will also off-haul the stockpile across from the Palace of Fine Arts.
On Thursday, August 4, McDowell Avenue is scheduled to be closed from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. the following morning. This closure is required for crews to safely remove the large beams that were part of the protective structure for the Pet Cemetery.
On Saturday, July 9, from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. the following morning, crews will conduct electrical work at the Richardson Avenue/Lyon Street intersection to continue retrofitting the intersection with pedestrian push-button crosswalk signalization and other upgrades.
On Monday, June 20, from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. the following morning, crews will work to repair portions of the Gorgas Avenue warehouses' drainage system in and around the manhole in the Gorgas Avenue parking lot.
Tenants are advised to minimize any drainage of any water intended for treatment during this time, including toilets, sinks, showers and laundry.
On Saturday, May 21, between 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., crews will be pouring concrete in two separate areas: along the Gorgas Avenue/Richardson Avenue intersection and along Girard Road near Edie Road.
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.
