The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy has been undertaking the construction on the southeast end of the Golden Gate Bridge over recent months. This construction is to improve the visitor experience for everyone that visits the Bridge and uses the trails in the area. The Conservancy is now approaching the final weeks of construction in this area. We alerted you earlier this week that the west sidewalk will REOPEN on May 23.

Effective Monday, May 7 and extending through May 18, there will be a change in bicycle ROUTING between the east sidewalk entrance at the south end and the visitor plaza area. The final phase of construction in the plaza requires the closure of the ramp/roadway in to the plaza. Bicyclists will have two options:

  • They may ride on the sidewalk between the Roundhouse and toll plaza south of the east sidewalk; or
  • They may walk their bike down the ramp that will also be used by pedestrians.

Thank you for your patience through the closure of the west sidewalk and Bay Trail. We greatly appreciate it, and look forward to enjoying the new, safer trails once they are complete in just two weeks, on May 23.

Please also take special care on Monday morning, May 7, as there will be a press event in the area from 8:30am to noon.

If you have any questions, please call 415-561-3054.
