Project Number18-049
Project NameArea B Stationless Bikeshare Program (JUMP Bikes)
Planning DistrictPresidio-wide
Project TypeTransportation/Parking
CE AppliedVisitor activity or program changes
CE Date8/14/2018
Project Description
Bikeshare is revolutionizing intra-city transportation, and pedal-assist technology makes bikeshare even more popular for commuting and recreational trips. Since launching in January 2018, JUMP Bikes, an electric bicycle sharing service, has seen explosive growth across San Francisco, with nearly 5,000 trips starting, ending or passing through the Presidio. JUMP Bikes will deploy up to 50 electric bicycles and use the bicycle racks in Area B for parking pursuant to the provisions of a permit and applicable law. Bicycles will be available for pick-up and drop-off by customers on a twenty-four hour, seven day per week basis and will accommodate a wide range of users. The system and usage data generated will be shared with the Trust and contribute to our understanding of how people will use electric bicycles compared to other forms of transportation. Incorporating the Presidio into the larger JUMP service area will ensure increased access to and from the park for residents, visitors and employees.
 
Project Number18-045
Project NameBattery Sherwood/Building 643 Retaining Wall
Planning DistrictCrissy Field
Project TypeLandscaping/Site Work
CE AppliedRemoval of non-historic materials and structures
CE Date7/26/2018
Project Description
Over the past several years, the slope behind NHL-contributing building 643 and below contributing Battery Sherwood has experienced landslides of varying degrees of severity. Over the 2017-2018 winter, approximately 75 cubic yards of accumulated slide debris was removed from the slope, followed by the installation of a temporary mitigation measure of a concrete K rail wall at the toe of the slope (reviewed as project 18-012). Since installing the temporary measure, a soils engineer has evaluated the site and designed a permanent solution. This project consists of a catchment/retaining wall measuring 56 feet long by 4 feet high constructed of 4-inch by 12-inch treated horizontal wood lagging supported by 8 vertical steel wide flange beams/columns set in 14-foot deep drilled piers surrounded by concrete. Following construction of the retaining wall, the contractor will conduct testing, off-haul and disposal of spoils from the drilling operation as well as removal of the temporary K rail.
 
Project Number18-042
Project NameQuartermaster Reach Olympia Oysters Restoration
Planning DistrictCrissy Field
Project TypeMiscellaneous
CE AppliedResearch, monitoring, inventorying, and information gathering
CE Date7/16/2018
Project Description
The native Olympia oysters (Ostrea lurida) nearly disappeared from San Francisco Bay following overharvest during the Gold Rush (1848-50s) and massive silting from hydraulic mining in the Sierra Nevada (1850s-1880s). But in the 1990s, O. lurida once again appeared in San Francisco Bay near the Chevron Richmond Refinery in Richmond, California. As part of the upcoming Quartermaster Reach (QMR) restoration and with input from National Park Service and California Department of Fish and Wildlife resource specialists, this project will introduce substrate into the intertidal zone to support natural recruitment of this species of oysters. Oysters are an important species for restoration because they improve water quality and create habitat for aquatic vegetation and animals. Two forms of substrate will be introduced after QMR is excavated and constructed: polyethylene mesh bags of oyster shell, and form-cast reef balls made from a mixture of cement, sand, and oyster shells. The substrate will be derived from over ten cubic yards of treated (i.e., dried, bleached and steamed to prevent unwanted pathogens) oyster shells that have been collected from five San Francisco restaurants and are currently being stockpiled at Fort Scott. In addition, fabricated concrete panels installed within the culverts and fiberglass panels placed on the marsh bottom may also be used to attract oyster larvae.
