  • In 1984, the City of Pacifica constructed an 18-22-foot-tall seawall with a rip rap revetment and promenade along Beach Boulevard north of the Pacifica Pier. The southern section of the seawall was constructed in 1987 using a differing design. Since its construction, the north seawall has experienced failures in multiple locations and continues to be an increasing public health and safety risk for the City.

Project Overview

  • The Beach Boulevard Infrastructure Resiliency Project is being designed to create a multi-benefit solution to protect public infrastructure, recreational activities, numerous homes, businesses, and the community at large, from further impacts due to continued coastal erosion. It aims to replace the current seawall and outdated infrastructure while building climate resilience into the most vulnerable segment of the City of Pacifica’s shoreline.
  • The Project is an infrastructure protection and improvement project that is critical to the public health and safety of the citizens and visitors in and around the historic West Sharp Park neighborhood. 
  • Benefits include: 
    • Protection of West Sharp Park homes and businesses from overtopping, coastal erosion, and future sea level rise.
    • Secured public infrastructure of roads and underlying sewer mains, storm drains and gas and electrical conduit.
    • Improved public access to the beach.
    • Protection of recreational use on the Promenade for walkers, joggers, cyclists, and others.
  • The Project entails assessing the entire span of the current infrastructure and seawall which includes four different structures:the north wall, the pier sheet pile wall, the south wall and south gap.
