Work takes place in late 2023 and 2024.
(Updated September 14, 2023)
In late 2023 and 2024, we’re making changes to the bike lanes and roadway on Arguello Boulevard between Arguello Gate and Washington Boulevard. Our goal is to reduce vehicle speeds and promote safer bicycle travel and connectivity. The improvements will happen in three phases. See below for details.
To immediately improve conditions in the area, in September 2023 we’re making e a series of changes as described below and shown in the project map.
In October 2023, we will:
In 2024, we will begin a substantial effort to repave roadways and parking lots in several locations around the Presidio. Through this work, we will repave Arguello Boulevard between the gate and Washington Boulevard. This will create an opportunity to make additional improvements in the area, informed by what we learn from Phase One and Phase Two.
Our transportation engineers, working with outside consultants, evaluated this approach and determined that, due to the narrow width of the roadway, side slopes and sensitive habitat, protected bike lanes on both sides of Arguello are not possible at this time.
Most of the park’s roads need to accommodate many different uses and users – from trucks and buses to pedestrians and cyclists. However, the Presidio does offer many multi-use trails and a few roadway sections completely closed to cars (e.g. Barnard Road) that allow low-stress biking opportunities outside our roadway network.
