The big closure is just three days away.

The Bay Bridge will close starting late in the evening on Wednesday, August 28. It will last for up to five full days over the long Labor Day holiday. The bridge, with its new eastern span, is scheduled to reopen by Tuesday, September 3.

AC Transit is offering extra bus service to some East Bay BART stations to help people catch a train to get across the bay during the closure.

BART will be operating trains around-the-clock at several stations.

The San Francisco Bay ferry is expanding its schedule.
