The City of Foster City is pleased to invite the public to a celebration of the Grand Re-Opening of the Foster City Levee Pedway! A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on November 20, 2013 at 1:45 PM on the pedway at the end of the concrete pathway that is accessible from the corner of Port Royal Avenue and Cumberland Court.

In 2010 the City undertook to comprehensively repave, repair and reconstruct the 8-mile levee pedway. On October 31, 2013, the final phase of this intensive project was substantially completed. The work consisted of pavement grinding, base repairs, asphalt repaving and/or seal coating, re-striping of the pedway and installation of a new feature: a 2-foot path adjacent to the pedway on the inboard side for walkers and joggers.

Foster City's levee pedway is a premier recreational amenity as well as a thoroughfare for bicyclists and pedestrians. It serves not only Foster City, but as a segment of the Bay Trail, it follows the bayshore around the edge of the city and crosses under the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge toward San Mateo. The path is smooth enough for roller skaters and baby strollers and excellent for walkers and joggers as well as bicyclists. The Bay Trail in Foster City is easily accessible at almost any point along the route from the neighborhood streets.

Although most sections of the levee pedway remained open during work, portions were closed throughout the process, inconveniencing pedway users. Property owners adjacent to the pedway were also involved in ensuring that work was able to progress. The City greatly appreciated the patience and cooperation with any inconvenience caused by the construction activity as improvements to the pedway were being completed. We hope that the community will enjoy this newly constructed levee pedway and walking path.

If you have any questions about the levee pedway repair project or the Grand Re-Opening Ceremony, please contact Assistant Engineer Ashraf Shah at 650-286-3270 or ashah@fostercity.org
