The Presidio Parkway is a roadway tucked into the natural contours of the Presidio of San Francisco and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, one of the nation’s largest urban parks. Presidio Parkway creates a regional gateway between the Golden Gate Bridge and the city of San Francisco and North Bay communities.
The 1.6-mile, six-lane roadway (Highway 101) winds through the Presidio national park, linking the city to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. The new highway includes twin high-viaduct bridges, four tunnels, and a low viaduct interchange, with continuous shoulders and a landscaped median.
Known as Doyle Drive since it was first opened in 1936, the safer, streamlined Presidio Parkway includes local roads within the Presidio, providing a major regional traffic link between the San Francisco Peninsula and North Bay Area counties. It features numerous safety enhancements, including current seismic safety requirements, a median barrier separating north-bound and south-bound traffic, wider traffic lanes and safety shoulders.
