Doyle Drive Seismic Safety Celebration May 4, 10:30 a.m.

SAN FRANCISCO - Mayor Ed Lee joins state and regional transportation officials to celebrate a safe and successful demolition weekend and the achievement of seismic safety on Doyle Drive. Seismic safety is a major milestone for the Presidio Parkway Project, marking the completion of Phase I of construction. Processing demolition debris from the historic roadway is expected to continue for two months.


Motorists on Doyle Drive now travel on a new, seismically safe bypass, comprised of the completed tunnel and bridge and a temporary roadway. Five lanes of traffic will be managed by a moveable median barrier, greatly improving safety along the corridor. The new driving condition will remain in place until the project is completed in 2015.

WHO:        San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee
                 San Francisco Supervisor, District 2, Mark Farrell
                 Federal Highway Administration, CA Division Administrator Vince Mammano
                 Caltrans Acting Director Malcolm Dougherty
                 Caltrans District 4 Director Bijan Sartipi
