Southbound Hwy 101 to Southbound Hwy 1 Ramp Closure


SAN FRANCISCO - Beginning Friday, June 24 at 8:00 p.m. there will be a closure of the southbound connection from the Golden Gate Bridge to Highway 1/Park Presidio Boulevard. The ramp is scheduled to reopen on Saturday, June 25 at 11:00 a.m.

The ramp closure is necessary in order to shift the southbound Highway 1 off-ramp to the north and continue work on the Ruckman Bridge and High Viaduct.

Expect delays on Saturday morning. Optional trips should be avoided during this closure. 

New Roadway Alignment after the Closure
The exit from southbound Hwy 101 to southbound Hwy 1 will be moved to north and will become a mandatory two lane exit that will temporarily merge into one lane. See the graphic on the right for the new location of the exit.

Motorists should be aware of the new roadway configuration and otherwise exercise caution in construction zones.

See the advisory for maps and detour routes.

Ramp Closure Detour Information
Detour signage will direct southbound travelers to continue on Highway 101 (Lombard Street and Van Ness Avenue) to Geary Boulevard to Highway 1/Park Presidio Boulevard. This detour route was selected because it is able to carry a high volume of traffic and uses relatively flat streets. The signed detour must be accessible to all vehicles, including large trucks, motor homes, etc.; however, most people will choose their alternate route based on what is most convenient for where they are coming from and going to.
The closure was scheduled for a time when traffic volumes are lowest and crews can work safely without endangering the traveling public.
