Officials plan to close Bay Bridge over President's Day

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Officials are planning to shutdown westbound traffic across the Bay Bridge on President's Day weekend in February, if the weather cooperates.

The closure would last two to three days so construction crews can reconfigure the roadway taking traffic onto a new westbound detour.

The work requires dry pavement, so any rain could postpone or lengthen the closure.

The project is part of a complicated reshuffle to allow both directions of the new eastern span to open to traffic in 2013.
