NIGHT WORK AT NORTH END OF GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE
ROADWAY SURFACE GRINDING ON JANUARY 23, 24, and 25
BRIDGE REMAINS OPEN TO TRAFFIC WITH LANE DIVERSIONS THROUGH THE CONSTRUCTION AREA

As part of Golden Gate Bridge Seismic Retrofit Construction Project Phase 3A and in preparation for the replacement of approximately 300 feet of Golden Gate Bridge roadway at the north end of the span, approximately two inches of the existing asphalt surface which is located on top of the existing concrete surface below, will be removed through a grinding process over three nights on January 23, 24, 25.

After the grinding of a given section is completed, there will be a minor but noticeable taper down to the ground area from the unground roadway and then a taper back up to the unground roadway. We do not anticipate a bump per se but motorists will be able to feel the transition. We have installed signs at the work location at the sidewalk level to assist in informing the travelling public not to change lanes through this area. Shortly after the asphalt is removed, the actual roadway reconstruction will occur at night with similar lane diversions thru the construction area.
