Phase I of the Bayshore Boulevard enhancement project is nearing completion. Southbound Bayshore has been completely opened to traffic. Northbound will open concurrently with the Platt Street Bridge opening scheduled for Tuesday, January 17.

As part of Phase I of the Bayshore project, pedestrian enhancements have been installed to provide crosswalks across Bayshore Boulevard at both Bay to Bay Boulevard and Platt Street. Drivers should be aware of new traffic signal indications that will stop northbound traffic to allow pedestrian crossings.

Phase I improvements also provided improvements from Platt Street to Rome Avenue that include a southbound bike lane, northbound left turn lanes, additional ADA accessible pedestrian crossings and a vehicular separator median.
