To expedite reopening the Bay Bridge westbound right lane, the center lane will close this evening beginning at 4 p.m. so that crews can continue pouring latex modified concrete before rain begins in the area tonight. There will be no mid-day westbound center lane closure.
With the current State of Emergency for COVID-19 and related school, business and other closures, Bay Bridge traffic volumes have been lower than normal. While minimal delays are anticipated, please factor this lane closure into your travel plans today.
The center-lane closure will transition into the standard full westbound bridge closure anticipated between 7 and 8 p.m., with two-way traffic operating on the eastbound span.
During the center lane closures, the remaining lane will be 11 feet wide, meaning wide loads – vehicles wider than 10 feet – will be prohibited. Operators of wide-load vehicles should adjust westbound travel times.
