Caltrans will close the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge over two full weekends, beginning, May 8-11, and continuing Memorial Day Weekend, May 22-25. The full closures for all eastbound and westbound lanes will begin at 10:00 PM on Friday and continue until 5:00 AM on Monday. (Including Memorial Day Weekend) There will be westbound lane closures as early as 7:00 PM and eastbound lane closures as early as 8:00 PM
The full closures will allow crews to resurface and treat the deck structure. In addition to the resurfacing, the closures will enable crews to perform routine maintenance. The activities will help prolong the service life of the bridge.
Commuters are asked to use alternate routes such as the Dumbarton Bridge, San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge, or the southern route along Highway 237.
In the eastbound direction (Foster City) the on-ramps from Edgewater Boulevard and Metro Center Boulevard will be closed. In the westbound direction (Hayward) the on-ramps from Industrial Boulevard and Clawiter Road will be closed. All off-ramps will remain open. Mainline traffic will be guided to exit eastbound 92 at Foster City Boulevard and westbound 92 at Clawiter Road.
NOTE: Motorists will be able to travel up to the westbound off-ramp at Clawiter Road, and as far as the off-ramp at Foster City Boulevard during the closures.
Changeable message signs are posted throughout the Bay Area to notify motorist of the upcoming closures.
