Document Description
The proposed Ocean Beach Climate Change Adaptation Project would address shoreline erosion, severe coastal storm and wave hazards, and sea level rise which threaten city infrastructure, coastal access and recreational facilities, and public safety. Major project components include: (1) permanently closing the Great Highway between Sloat and Skyline boulevards, and reconfiguring affected intersections and San Francisco Zoo parking access; (2) removing pavement, rock and sandbag revetments, and rubble and debris from the beach, and recontouring the bluff and planting dune vegetation; (3) improving public access, maintaining coastal parking and continuing to provide restroom facilities; (4) installing a buried wall to protect existing sewer infrastructure from shoreline erosion; and (5) long-term beach nourishment (sand replenishment).
