Golden Gate Bridge Toll Booth Seismic Retrofitting

Golden Gate Bridge Toll Booth #3 shut down on March 11, 2015 for seismic work – and will remain closed for a month.  In order to accommodate the work, the lanes adjacent to the toll booth will also be closed. Lane #3 will be closed for the duration of the retrofit work and Lane #4 will also be closed at night from 7:00 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.

The retrofit of Toll Booth #5 went smoothly, and Booth #5 reopened today. The booth was closed for about a month.

During the modification of the toll booths and canopy for the Moveable Median Barrier project, District engineers determined the structure needed to be retrofitted. The District’s contractor will be performing minor demolition work and adding steel bracing to several toll booths over the course of a few months. 

Similar work has already been completed with Toll Booth #7. Below is an image depicting construction at Toll Booth #7.

The Toll Plaza clock will be replaced once all other retrofit work is complete, likely by early summer. Driving lanes #7 and #8 will open once the Doyle Drive reconfiguration is complete. That work is expected to be finished in the spring.
