Were you stuck on the bay bridge traffic this week… yet again?
If you were commuting at night, gridlock was most likely due to the lane closures that began on Friday, December 11. (However–come to think of it–we’re not convinced it wasn’t also Lady Gaga and the 49ers).
Why the bottleneck? Labor Day weekend, workers discovered and repaired a crack in an eyebar on the bridge. In late October, the section underwent additional work. Last weekend, workers began a repair project on the eyebar that is expected to last three weeks. Until the completion of the project, factor the nightly closure of three westbound lanes and one eastbound lane into your travel plans.
