FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Interstate 280 Bridge Hinge Replacement Project
Road Closure Planned for Labor Day Weekend
San Francisco – In seven 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 Labor Day weekend closure will begin Thursday, August 28 at 2 p.m. and continue until Tuesday, September 2, at 5 a.m. This closure is necessary to replace two bridge hinges on northbound I-280. The bridge hinges are located near Cesar Chavez Street.
The California Department of Transportation expects that there will be significant travel delay during this northbound closure. 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: 2 p.m. Thursday, August 28
Full northbound closure Ends: 5 a.m., Tuesday morning, September 2.
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 this closure
