104-Hours (4 Days-8-Hours) Road Closure Begins in Two Days
Significant Travel Delay Expected for July 4
San Francisco – In two days the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close northbound Interstate 280 from the U.S. 101/I-280 interchange to downtown San Francisco. The Fourth of July Holiday closure will begin Wednesday at 9 p.m. and continue until Monday at 5 a.m.
The California Department of Transportation expects that there will be significant travel delay during this northbound closure, and that motorists should in particular expect additional travel time on Friday, July 4. Alternate routes should be taken when possible.
Detour: Northbound Interstate 280 traffic will detour to U.S. 101. When travelling during the closure it is strongly advised to call 511 or check with 511.org and to use public transportation such as BART, Caltrain, MUNI, and SamTrans.
Full northbound closure Begins: 9 p.m. Wednesday evening, July 2
Full northbound closure Ends: 5 a.m., Monday morning, July 7.
Northbound on-ramp closures include:
- Alemany Boulevard on-ramp
- U.S. 101 connector to northbound Interstate 280
- Indiana Street/25th Street on-ramp
- 18th Street on-ramp
Southbound I-280 will remain open during the northbound closure.
