NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The City of Pacifica proposes to implement a project to protect and maintain existing infrastructure along Esplanade Avenue, including the public street and underground utilities, which are currently threatened by coastal bluff retreat. The proposed project design includes several structural elements to fortify the bluff including a buried sheet pile wall at the toe of the bluff, a cap beam on top of the sheet pile wall, and a shotcrete (sprayed concrete) wall secured to the bluff face with tieback rods/tendons drilled into the bluff face. The shotcrete wall is estimated to be approximately 650 feet long and extends to an elevation of 40 feet above sea level, which is approximately a height of 26 feet above the toe of the bluff. The project would also include removing loose debris against the bluff and existing riprap on the beach. The currently proposed design for the seawall provides protection and allows for some retreat of the upper portion of the bluff. A trail, fencing, signage, and native plant landscaping is proposed on the blufftop where structures once stood. Once the bluff top improvements are completed, the blufftop area would be open for public access. The purpose of the Project is to protect the City’s infrastructure for the design life of the seawall which is expected to be 30 years.
