Doyle Drive tree removal begins

Despite facing legal uncertainties, construction work will move forward on the Doyle Drive rebuild project.

Starting Monday, construction crews will begin tree removal activities along southbound Doyle Drive, with the work taking place between Merchant Road and Lincoln Boulevard. The tree removal is expected to last six weeks, and is necessary for the future installation of an underground electrical line, which will support new bridge and tunnel systems.

A six-lane highway built in 1936, Doyle Drive carries roughly 120,000 vehicles each day. Through a new rehabilitation project, it will be replaced by a thoroughfare called the Presidio Parkway, an artery featuring two sets of tunnels, rebuilt aerial viaducts and dedicated bike lanes.
