El Camino Del Mar is conditionally open on nights and weekends. Although final signage and traffic controls are not installed, a temporary chain-link fence around the planters and K-rail in the approach to the planters have been installed. This will continue for the remainder of construction (summer 2020). Please note there is ongoing construction that requires vehicles and materials to be staged on portions of the road.
Green Infrastructure at Baker Beach
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) will begin construction of new green infrastructure (GI) features including rain gardens and pervious concrete at locations along El Camino Del Mar and Sea Cliff Avenue. Check out the demonstration video
of pervious concrete pavement from the Holloway Green Street ribbon cutting and block party!
This Project Will
- Manage approximately 2.6 million gallons stormwater/year
- Reduce combined sewer discharges from Baker Beach outfalls
- Improve urban habitat, traffic calming and bicycle/pedestrian safety
- Provide water and sewer improvements, and roadway reconstruction along Sea Cliff Avenue

What to Expect During Construction
- While the contractor is required to abide by the City’s noise and vibration ordinances, neighbors should expect some noise and limited dust during this work. The project team will work to minimize disruption to normal neighborhood activity; however there will be occasional inconveniences due to heavy equipment movement and other construction activities.
- Residents in the work zone will maintain access to their garages, although there may be temporary delays.
- Pedestrian and bicycle access along El Camino del Mar in Lincoln Park will be maintained during construction.
- The California Coastal Trail access to Baker Beach at 25th Avenue North will be temporarily closed during construction. Alternative entries will remain open.
- Lands End Trail will remain open during construction.
- Parking will be restricted in the work zone. Please see posted signs for exact details.
- No interruption in water service or quality is expected during construction. Advance notice will be given.
Funding for this project has been provided in part through an agreement with the State Water Resources Control Board using funds from Proposition 50.
