Maintenance work continues at Bedwell Bayfront Park in Menlo Park
As construction at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge continues, workers have completed a parallel track for trucks that will remove truck traffic from most parts of the San Francisco Bay Trail in Bedwell Bayfront Park.
Trucks continue to use the park’s entrance and the first ¼ mile of the Bay Trail that borders the west and south sides of the tidal pond. The construction work by contractors began in July to bring soil through the park to the area, in order to maintain and protect shorebird pond levees.
Ongoing continuing construction impacts to the Park include:
• Park entrance: Trucks travel through the park entrance. However, the entrance remains open to public vehicles through the construction activities. The pedestrian/bicycle trail entrance has been shifted to the south. Work areas are separated from public users by fences, signs and/or barriers, and flaggers are present near the park entrance when trucks are active.
• Trails: Aside from the ¼-mile Bay Trail segment along the Park’s southwest corner, the rest of the Park’s extensive trail network will not be impacted. Trail sections impacted by trucks will be open for use after 5:00 pm and on weekends and holidays.
