The Golden Gate Bridge to be Closed to Cars, Not Instagrammers This Weekend
If you're thinking about heading to the North Bay this weekend, think again (at least via the Golden Gate Bridge). Everyone's favorite bridge will be closed to cars this weekend for the for the installation of a moveable median barrier, part of a $30 million effort to prevent head-on collisions on the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't worry, you'll still be able to Instagram it. And for the people who cross the bridge for work, it will be reopened for your commute Monday morning.
The Golden Gate Bridge will be closed this coming weekend (12:01AM Saturday, Jan. 10 to 4:00AM Monday, Jan. 12) to install a moveable median barrier. Road closures in the immediate area will begin several hours before. The Bridge's east sidewalk will remain open during the closure to pedestrians and cyclists. Please use caution on the sidewalk as it will likely be heavily traveled.
Golden Gate Transit buses will be permitted to cross the Bridge throughout the weekend and will operate weekend schedules. Routes 10, 70, and 101 provide frequent bus service between San Francisco and the North Bay. Routes 10 and 17 and late-night Route 70 trips will not operate through Sausalito this weekend. Instead, customers may ride a free shuttle between downtown Sausalito and Marin City to connect with their desired route. Stops between downtown Sausalito and the Bridge will not be served.
Golden Gate Sausalito Ferry will operate normal weekend service. Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry will operate added service (between 5:45AM and 1:40AM) on Saturday, Jan. 10 and Sunday, Jan. 11.
The Golden Gate Customer Service Center will be open from 8AM to 5PM on Saturday and Sunday for trip planning assistance. Call 511 and say "Golden Gate Transit"/TDD 711. For more information, visit goldengate.org or call 511/TDD 711.
