Phase I Preconstruction Activities
Prior to beginning work on the Presidio Parkway, the Doyle Drive replacement, the construction team needed to prepare the site for the upcoming activity. Preconstruction work began in summer 2009 and continued through March 2010. Learn more about the site preparation, including tree removal and protection, native plant and seed collection and utility relocation.
The area surrounding the construction site had to be carefully cleared of trees to create space for construction equipment and materials. Although there is a visual impact as a result of the tree removal, an extensive landscaping effort is a critical part of the project design.
The project's Tree Removal and Projection Plan was carefully developed in collaboration with experts and the Presidio Trust to remove only the trees necessary and protect the surrounding area. Furthermore, the eventual replacement of existing trees with young, healthy and more diverse trees will help improve this man-made forest in the long term.
