Presidio road closure causes ‘unrest’

Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier said a temporary closure of the Presidio Boulevard “has caused a great deal of unrest” and called for hearing Tuesday to learn about the findings of the closure.

On Sept. 29, the boulevard was closed to vehicles between West Pacific Avenue and Simonds Loop, and Crissy Field Avenue was shut down on its one-way uphill portion.

The temporary closure was done by transportation officials who are testing out traffic calming measures in anticipation of the construction on the nearby Doyle Drive, which carries traffic on and off the Golden Gate Bridge.

The study is being monitored by San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and the Presidio Trust, the federal organization in charge of operations at the site, as they prepare for different traffic patterns during the rebuild of Doyle Drive.

“The study will go on until Oct. 27,” Alioto-Pier said. “I’ve been told from the Presidio that that will probably be cut down because of the number of calls that they’ve received.”

She added: “I look forward to hearing what the Presidio had found out.”
