It was a cold, wet weekend with snowstorms in the Sierras and a blasting of hail here in San Francisco. The Chronicle is reporting that Crissy Field, a gorgeous walking spot along the beach and underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, is getting a face lift. Starting on March 16, the 1.5-mile long promenade, which according to the Chron sees 1.2 million visitors per year, will close in four stages for a major restoration. The trail will be resurfaced, drainage will be improved, gravel will be replaced with shale composite, and in some areas, it will become wider. The project will add 15 years to the popular path’s lifespan, but will cost $5 million.
