Overnight Closures of Last S.F. Exit Just Before Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza, Nov. 16 & 17

SAN FRANCISCO - There will be two overnight closures of the last northbound exit just before the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza on Wednesday, November 16 and Thursday, November 17, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning. These ramp closures are part of a roadway project to improve the off-ramp and the intersection at the Southeast Visitor Plaza area.

Drivers should use local roads to access Lincoln Boulevard.

This project is expected to last approximately three weeks. There will be additional ramp closures at the conclusion of the project to repave the off-ramp. The dates for these closures will be announced when they are confirmed.

The closures were scheduled for a time when traffic volumes are lowest.  

See the advisory for maps and detour routes.

Southeast Visitor Plaza Improvements
These ramp closures are part of a project to improve traffic and safety conditions around the Southeast Visitor Plaza/Lincoln Boulevard/Merchant Road intersection and help alleviate congestion during construction. Work will include:

• Implementing an all-way stop at the Merchant Rd./Lincoln Blvd. intersection to improve the operation of the intersection.

• Removing and reconstructing the center median island on Merchant Rd., widening the roadway and restriping to create two lanes in each direction, increasing storage and intersection capacity.

• Widening the northbound Highway 101 off ramp in order to create separate left and right turn lanes.

This project is being conducted in cooperation with the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, National Park Service, and Presidio Trust.
