It's a little more than that:

Crissy Field construction to last through summer
By Daniel Montes
February 13, 2017

San Francisco’s Crissy Field is due for a brand new promenade, and construction to rebuild the oceanfront path is set to begin in March, National Park Service officials announced Monday.

Since the promenade opened in 2001, it has degraded beyond repair due to harsh weather and high use by its more than 18 million visitors, according to park officials.

The new project, which will be implemented in four phases in order to minimize impact to visitors, will see the granite promenade converted into one made of a more durable compacted shale material.

The new trail will look and feel similar to the current one, but is expected to last longer, park officials said.

Construction is expected to last through the summer . . . .

The $5 million project was given $2.5 million by the NPS’ Centennial Challenge Project, according to NPS officials.
