The Golden Gate Bridge Is Closed This Weekend -- Here's How To Get Around The Bay

The Golden Gate Bridge will be closed this weekend while crews install a moveable median barrier.

It’s the first time the bridge has been closed in 77 years.

From 12:01 a.m. Saturday to 4:00 a.m. Monday, cars won’t be able to use the bridge at all.

The Golden Gate Bridge District is basically telling people to sit tight over the weekend — but here’s how you can get to and from the North Bay while the bridge is down, should you so desire:

  • The bridge’s east sidewalk (facing the Bay) will remain open, so you can walk or bike across.
  • Golden Gate Transit Buses will be allowed to use the bridge.
  • The Golden Gate Ferry has expanded service over the weekend to accommodate people who can’t use the bridge.
  • The Bay Bridge and the Richmond-San Rafael bridge will be operating normally. If you need to get to/from San Francisco by car, that’s the only way to do it.
  • If you have deeper pockets, water taxis will be speeding around the Bay, too.
