San Francisco braces for traffic nightmare near Golden Gate Bridge

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/10/2015 - 14:03
San Francisco residents were bracing for several days of snarled traffic after a key approach to the Golden Gate Bridge was closed on Thursday to allow crews to complete work on a major new access route to the iconic span. The 79-hour closure, which will last through 5 a.m. local time on Monday, was expected to result in delays of up to four hours for vehicles forced to use the only other approach to cross the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco into Marin County, said project spokeswoman Molly Graham said. "If you come to the Presidio (neighborhood) by bike or on foot, there’ll be lots of activity to see while the crews work, but for vehicles, the traffic will be major,” Graham said.
