Cost $55,442 from Sea Cliff thru [sic] Lincoln Park to Point Lobos Avenue. Removed existing oiled surface and replaced with a 2 inch asphalt wearing surface for 8/10ths of a mile. Raised 800 lineal feet of settled gutter and sidewalks, resloped the cuts and landscaped the hill sides. It provided a scenic road overlooking Seal Rocks and the Golden Gate and forms the principal approach to the Palace of the Legion of Honor and the western end of the Lincoln Highway.–Healy, p. 48.
