For the first time in its 77-year history, the Golden Gate Bridge will be closed for construction.
The Bridge will be closed for 52 hours over the second weekend of January 2015. The Bridge will close at 12:00 a.m., Saturday, January 10th, 2015. It will reopen at 4:00 a.m. Monday, January 12th, 2015.

The Bridge District urges the public to stay away from the Bridge area during this weekend. If travel between San Francisco and the North Bay Area is necessary, here are some options to get to your destination:
