Bay Trail at Battery East is under construction from the intersection of Long Ave and Lincoln Blvd to the Golden Gate Bridge visitor plaza area on the southeast side.

Between August 11 and August 15, 2008, final paving and sealing of the segment of the Battery East Rd/Bay Trail heading west from Long Ave, around the Battery East parking lot and on to the Fort Point Overlook near Golden Gate Bridge, will be completed. The entire trail will be closed during this week-long construction period. Cyclists heading to the Golden Gate Bridge will use the shoulder of Lincoln from Long Ave to the Bridge visitor plaza parking lot. Pedestrians must follow posted detours along Battery East Trail. One to two Project Information Coordinators will continue working onsite every day to assist visitors through the detours around the closed work zone.

The project is now anticipated to be completed by August 19. For questions or more detailed information regarding this project and associated closures, please call (415) 816-8880 or email
