We’re Taking advantage
of the Closure
The closure also provides the opportunity
to place new FasTrak- only lanes at the Bay
Bridge Toll Plaza and to perform other main-tenance
and construction work without risk
to the public.
A section of roadway— approximately the length of a
football field— has been constructed on a moveable sup-port
system south of the bridge. After the bridge has been
closed to traffic, the original section of roadway will be
demolished and the debris removed. Tracks will then be
laid across the lower deck and the new structure will be
rolled into position.
When the bridge reopens to traffic, motorists will prob-ably
not notice any visible difference. However, they will
be driving on a seismically upgraded roadway that will
eventually connect to the bridge’s new East Span, cur-rently
This work is part of the Bay Bridge Seismic Safety Projects
to strengthen the bridge.

Why Labor Day Weekend ?
Last year, by taking advantage of historically light holiday
bridge traffic, we completed a complex phase of work,
while minimizing disruptions to motorists, residents and
businesses over Labor Day weekend.
This year, we will be demolishing and replacing a section
of the bridge east of the Yerba Buena Island Tunnel. Expe-rience
gained from last year’s closure will help us perform
this complicated engineering and construction feat safely,
efficiently, and with minimal inconvenience to the public.
How will we entirely replace 350 feet
of road in less than 4 days?
The Bay Bridge has served commuters
for 70 years. A series of massive retrofit
projects is now bringing it up to current
Demolition is completed on a 350- foot
section of the bridge’s upper deck.
Special Tr acks Are
Tracks are laid horizontally across the
bridge’s lower deck.
Bridge re opens
The bridge will reopen to traffic after all
of the work has been completed.
