Golden Gate Bridge Seismic Retrofit Construction Requires Roadway Lane Closures through 2013
Sign-Up Now for Email Alerts about Roadway Lane Closures Associated with this Project

 

Phase 3A of the Golden Gate Bridge Seismic Retrofit Construction Project is underway at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge. The current work involves the installation of a new roadway at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge. This work requires nighttime lane closures on the Bridge.

Since spring 2012, to facilitate the replacement anchorage housing roof which serves as roadway for this section of the Bridge, we have been working only at night, and we have been keeping the roadway open to traffic through selective lane closures.

Since the nighttime work began in spring 2012, under normal nighttime working conditions the lane closures have been occurring as follows:

Northbound out of San Francisco: If the roadway needs to be reduced to 1 northbound lane, the lane setting of this lane configuration will not start sooner than 11 pm Mondays-Thursdays, and no sooner than midnight on Fridays.

Southbound into San Francisco: If the roadway needs to be reduced to 1 southbound lane, the lane setting of this lane configuration will not start sooner than 9 pm Mondays-Thursdays, and no sooner than 10 pm on Fridays.

SPECIAL NOTICE – Effective July 1, 2012
If lane closures are needed to occur EARLIER than the times indicated above for the lane reduction to 1 northbound and/or 1 southbound, we will post specific closure information on this web page by 9 am the morning of the day that an earlier closure is needed AND we will send an email alert to everyone that is registers to receive convenient email alerts by signing-up here:

This work will continue through to the end of 2012 and involves the replacement of the North Anchorage Housing roof/roadway deck with a pre-cast concrete slab-on-steel stringer deck system to be followed by welding the pre-cast deck system together, replacing existing expansion joints and asphalt paving on top the new deck.

June 28, Golden Gate Bridge Apology for Traffic Jam Last Night

Last night, June 27/28, the Golden Gate Bridge traffic diversion that closed the northbound traffic down to just one lane going north out of San Francisco at 9 pm was not the right decision to have made for the traveling public. We apologize for the resulting traffic jam.

Additionally, we will not allow this lane configuration to occur the way it did last night again. This decision was made based on traffic numbers that indicated a lighter pattern than was experienced last night. The Seismic Retrofit Construction project that has been ongoing at the north end of the Bridge required this earlier than normal lane closure configuration to be able to do the work that was required last night, and be sure that the Bridge reopened on time this morning.

We made an incorrect call most certainly, and we are hearing that loud and clear from the public. Please accept our most sincere apology.
