- Bay Bridge Replacement Ramps at the Yerba Buena Island, City and County of San Francisco (First Review) [, 171KB]
The Design Review Board will hold a public hearing on a proposal to alter the design of the east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The east span is currently under construction by California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The bridge alteration is proposed by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority in partnership with Caltrans and would provide two new ramps connecting to Yerba Buena Island. The new ramp configuration is intended to improve vehicular access to and from the island. The proposed ramps would be located outside of the Commission’s 100-foot shoreline band, but within the Waterfront Park and Beach Priority Use Area depicted in the San Francisco Bay Plan. The project would provide additional public access improvements beyond those that were originally authorized by BCDC Permit No. 8-01, issued to Caltrans for the east span seismic safety project.
