There will be NO ACCESS to Hwy 101 South. All traffic will be diverted to Hwy 1 South/19th Avenue exit. Merchant Road/Lincoln Blvd will remain open.

The public is encouraged to avoid the closure area and to use Golden Gate Transit buses and Golden Gate Ferry or the Bay Bridge if traveling into San Francisco. There will be NO Muni service at the Golden Gate Bridge during the closure.

All routes will operate on a detour after crossing the Bridge and some stops will NOT be served. Click here for more information.
