Commuters will not be able drive on the upper deck towards San Francisco during Presidents' Day Weekend due to construction. The closure will start at 8 p.m. Friday, February 17 and last through 5 a.m. Tuesday, February 21. What this means is that drivers won't be able to drive into San Francisco via the Bay Bridge. People can use a sundry of assorted options including BART, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge, and the Dumbarton Bridge. Ferry service is another option.
The holiday weekend closure will be used to remove a conflicting section of the Bay Bridge and construction for the westbound approach to the bridge. However, bad weather could slow construction and delay the reopening of the westbound deck past February 21.
On the plus side, eastbound traffic will have full access to the bridge during the closure.
