  Due to Eastbound Closure of Bay Bridge,

Expect Heavier Traffic on Golden Gate Bridge

Overnight this Weekend


As part of the seismic retrofit of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, Caltrans will be performing demolition work of the existing freeway requiring them to close the lower deck (eastbound) of the Bay Bridge out of San Francisco.  

The closure to eastbound traffic will occur overnight starting in the wee hours of Saturday morning October 15, from 1 am to 7 am, and overnight starting in the wee hours of Sunday morning October 16, from 1 am to 9 am. All East Bay-bound traffic will be diverted to either the Golden Gate and Richmond-San Rafael bridges, or the San Mateo bridge.
