During the September 26 closure, Caltrans will operate a bike shuttle to transport cyclists and their bikes across the bridge. Pickup/drop-off stations will be located at each end of the bridge: In Richmond at the Stenmark Drive entrance to the bridge path, and in San Rafael at the Vista Point.

Caltrans staff will be stationed at each location to coordinate pick-ups and drop-offs with the shuttle operator.

During the closure, work crews will replace pavement on the western end of the bridge that was damaged during a car fire.

Caltrans will keep one lane of westbound traffic open throughout the closure. Westbound motorists should expect delays.

Eastbound lanes, the lower deck, will not be affected.
