Caltrans to Close San Mateo-Hayward Bridge Over Two Weekends

San Mateo and Alameda Counties – Caltrans will close the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge over two weekends in May 2015: May 8-11 and May 15-18. A third weekend closure is reserved for May 22-25, but may not be needed. 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. There will be westbound lane closures as early as 7:00 pm. and eastbound lane closures as early as 8:00 pm.

The full closure will allow crews to resurface the entire span of the bridge and replace expansion joints. Some minor electrical work will be performed during the closure. The existing electrical cable system and transformers will be replaced.

Commuters are asked to use alternate routes such as the Dumbarton Bridge, San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge, or the southern route along Highway 237.

Some locations from 880/92 still accessible during the bridge closures
On the eastbound side (Foster City) the on-ramp from Edgewater Boulevard and Metro Center Boulevard will be closed. On the westbound side (Hayward) the on-ramp 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. One westbound lane may be closed as early as 11 a.m. on Friday.

Changeable message signs will be posted throughout the Bay Area on April 17 to notify motorist of the upcoming closures.
