Bicycle and pedestrian pathways along Hillcrest and Treasure Island Road


The Yerba Buena Island Multi-Use Pathway Project will build bicycle and pedestrian connections with protected pathways that run along Hillcrest Road and Treasure Island Road.

The new path will: 

  • Allow bicyclists and pedestrians at the Yerba Buena Island Vista Point to continue to the Treasure Island Ferry Terminal. 
  • Advance sustainable transportation options for the future residential and commercial development under construction on Yerba Buena Island and Treasure Island.

Project Partners:

  • San Francisco Public Works 
  • Bay Area Toll Authority
  • Treasure Island Development Authority
  • Caltrans
  • US Coast Guard


  • 2022 – 2023


  • 2023 – 2025


  • 2026 – 2027


Cost and Funding

The cost of the preliminary engineering, design, and construction phases of the Yerba Buena Island Multi-Use Pathway Project is $75 million, partially funded by the Transportation Authority’s Local Partnership Program, the Active Transportation Program and MTC’s Priority Conservation Area grants.
