Muni, Presidio Trust, introducing traffic calming measures

Driving in the Presidio will have a slightly different feel next month, with transportation officials testing out traffic calming measures in anticipation of the neighboring construction on Doyle Drive.

Starting on Sept. 29, Presidio Boulevard will be closed to traffic between West Pacific Avenue and Simonds Loop, and Crissy Field Avenue is slated to be shut down on its one-way uphill portion.

Along with the road closures, the pilot program, which is scheduled to last until Oct. 27, will also add speed bumps inside Arguello Gate, and four-way stops at the Lincoln Boulevard and Kobbe Avenue intersection.

The study is being monitored by Muni and the Presidio Trust, the federal organization in charge of operations at the site. Muni’s 43-Masonic bus line, which travels through the Presidio, will not be affected by the traffic-calming measures.

Muni and Presidio Trust officials are introducing the changes to see if they could potentially mitigate the impact of construction on Doyle Drive, the southern approach to the Golden Gate Bridge that is in the midst of a $1 billion rebuilding project. The construction will result in periodic closure of some off-ramps into the Presidio, which could affect traffic patterns.
