How will the new levee prevent flooding?

The levee design elevation has accounted for wave run-up, and the access points are protected from wave run-up with a concrete floodwall on the bay side of the access point. Flood barriers are also located at the egress bridge. Elevations along the new trail (bottom of the openings) are generally at least four feet above

Why was the Baffin Bridge closed?

As part of the project design, two small bridges are being built at the crossings to and from Belmont and Redwood Shores. The Baffin Bridge was closed while the contractor constructed the bridge.

What will the levee wall look like along Beach Park Boulevard, between the northern edge of Shorebird Park and the Swordfish Street intersection?

A portion of the retaining wall will be “set back” away from Beach Park Boulevard closer to the edge of the trail (as shown below in Graphic A). This will allow the height of the retaining wall to be reduced and more space between the wall and street to be created for landscaping. To soften

When the sheet piles are installed between the San Mateo Bridge and Baywinds, and the tide is high, preventing a water user from walking back to Baywinds via the water/mud, but they can egress the water via a ramp; How will they describe their location? Need to remember that they may be first time Baywinds users, may not be familiar with the location of the ramps, and will not be able to see over the sheet piles.

The rescuee should identify their location using any available visible landmarks in their immediate proximity or distance from identifiable landmarks (i.e. "I’m located ½ mile from the San Francisco side of the San Mateo Bridge on the shore on the Baywinds park side of the bay"). In addition, the City is working with the contractor
