This closure marks the final step before the new bridge opens to traffic.
Since 1936, the original East Span has facilitated the movement of people
and goods throughout the Bay Area. The 7.1-magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989 significantly damaged the region’s transportation structures,
and exposed the vulnerability of the existing East Span. Since that day, the
Toll Bridge Program Oversight Committee has worked diligently to replace
the original bridge and move everyone onto a safer structure. Following
the safe rerouting of traffic to the new East Span, the original East Span
will be demolished, a process that will take approximately three years.

While the Bay Bridge was closed during Labor Day weekends in 2006,
2007 and 2009, essential construction work was successfully completed
on schedule. Taking advantage of historically light traffic on the bridge during the holiday weekend helps minimize disruptions to motorists, residents
and businesses. Experience gained from previous closures will help us perform this construction safely again this year.

This Labor Day weekend, the Bay Bridge will be closed to take the original
East Span out of service and to open the new East Span to traffic. Work
will be done at the Oakland Touchdown and the Yerba Buena Island Transition Structure to connect the new bridge to the existing Toll Plaza and
Yerba Buena Island, respectively. Crews will also perform essential construction activities, including paving, striping and erecting barrier rail.
Throughout the closure, maintenance will work on the West Span, replacing
lighting fixtures, cleaning and painting the cable, and repairing finger
joints. For more information about construction during the weekend, see
the reverse side of this factsheet.

NEW EAST SPAN DEBUTS NEW DRIVING EXPERIENCE
When the bridge reopens to traffic on Tuesday, Sept. 3, motorists will
encounter a new driving experience, as traffic moves from the upper and
lower decks of the original bridge to the parallel, side-by-side decks of the
new East Span. The new side-by-side configuration will open up panoramic
views of the San Francisco bay and surrounding hills.

PATH FROM TOLL
PLAZA
BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN PATH
For the first time pedestrians and cyclists will have the chance to travel
across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge’s East Span, on a 15.5foot-wide bike/pedestrian path that will extend the 2.2 miles to Yerba
Buena Island.
Before the pathway can fully connect to Yerba Buena Island, crews will
need to demolish a portion of the existing bridge that sits in the way of the
new bike and pedestrian path. Contractors must dismantle portions of the
original bridge, including the S-Curve detour that was put into place in
2009, in order to install the rest of the path and connect it to Yerba Buena
Island, as well as replace the temporary path at Oakland Touchdown. The
bike path is expected to be complete by summer 2015. Information about
pathway access will be available prior to bridge opening.
