SF-80 Bayshore Viaduct Seismic Retrofit Projects Report on Construction Monitoring, Geoarchaeology, and Technical and Interpretive Studies for Historical Archaeology

 

~ Summary ~

The SF-80 Bayshore Viaduct Seismic Retrofit Projects (SF-80 Bayshore Project), an undertaking of District 4 of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), involved the retrofit of columns and footings supporting the elevated structure of Interstate 80 on 10 city blocks in the city of San Francisco: from Fourth Street between Harrison and Bryant to the viaduct’s junction with SF-101, at Sixteenth Street between San Bruno and Vermont. The archaeological project reported on here was necessary to achieve compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). As part of its plan to comply with CEQA, Caltrans contracted with the Anthropological Studies Center at Sonoma State University (ASC) to address project impacts to prehistoric and historical archaeology.

Note: One appendix and a few maps and figures have been omitted in the online version due to sensitive site information.
