A historic event is on the horizon – Doyle Drive is coming down! Traffic will soon be taken off the aging roadway and moved onto a seismically safe, temporary bypass. The new route will connect the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco across a new bridge, tunnel and temporary roadway. Traffic will remain on this route until construction is complete in 2015.
In order to begin demolition of Doyle Drive and complete the temporary roadway, Doyle Drive will be closed for one full weekend, April 27-30, from 8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday. During this time, noisy demolition activities will occur 24 hours a day.
Highway 1 to and from the Golden Gate Bridge will remain open, however, expect major delays. Motorists are encouraged to use the Bay Bridge to San Francisco. Bus and ferry service will be modified during the closure weekend. For more information, visit 511.org.
When the roadway reopens on Monday morning, travelers will experience a new driving condition on the temporary detour. Expect delays as drivers adjust!
Please help us spread the word to other Bay Area drivers to ensure a safe and successful closure weekend.
