Golden Gate Bridge Lane Closures Start Tonight

Posted By on Wed, Jul 30, 2014 at 3:55 PM

Note to those traveling to Marin this week: The Golden Gate Bridge will close several lanes of traffic starting tonight as crews prepare to install a movable median barrier designed to prevent head-on collisions

Bridge workers will reduce the number of southbound lanes open at the toll plaza every night this week while they work to build the $30.3 million median.
The southbound curb lane will also close tonight for new lane striping. When the southbound lane reopens Thursday morning, the number of open lanes at the toll plaza will be reduced from eight to six.

Every night the rest of this week, the northbound curb lane will close between the toll plaza and the Alexander Avenue exit from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Except on Saturday when the lane will reopen at 7 a.m. Vista Point and the Alexander Avenue offramp will also be closed, but a detour will allow vehicles to access Alexander Avenue.

Lane closures may continue into next week as modifications to the Toll Plaza get underway. This work will require the removal of the beloved 8-foot Art Deco clock, which will be refurbished and reinstalled later this year or early next year.

The proposed barrier would be about 13,340 feet in length and consist of 12-inch wide and 32-inch high steel clad units filled with high density concrete tightly pinned together to form a semi-rigid median barrier.

The project is slated for completion in January 2015.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
