SFCTA Kicks Off Yerba Buena Island Southgate Road Realignment Project
Project will realign critical on-Island connections and reopen the second I-80 eastbound off-ramp to Yerba Buena Island
The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) has recently kicked-off construction activities associated with the Yerba Buena Island (YBI) Southgate Road Realignment Project. The Southgate Road Realignment will realign YBI's Southgate Road, the critical local connection between the I-80 westbound and eastbound on- and off-ramps, and reconstruct and reopen the I-80 eastbound off-ramp to Yerba Buena Island.
This project is part of a larger effort to replace and retrofit key roads and on- and off-ramps that connect the I-80 (the highway on the Bay Bridge) and Yerba Buena Island. Funding for the $63.7 million project comes from the Federal Highway Bridge Program and State Prop. 1B facilitated by Caltrans, with local matching funds provided by the Bay Area Toll Authority, and the Treasure Island Development Authority.
TIDA is working jointly with the SFCTA on this effort, with these upgrades supporting the Treasure Island Transportation Program. Project completion is scheduled for 2022.
