SF Marathon

On Sunday, July 29, 2012 the SF Marathon will again cross the Golden Gate Bridge, accompanied by the closure of streets, parking lots and Bridge lanes.

We have all the information you need here at our sister site, OurSausalito.com.

To our Subscribers:  We apologize if you got two emails about this event.  We're trying to inform readers of each website since both the Golden Gate Bridge and Sausalito are affected, and we recognize that some people are subscibed on both lists.  We very much appreciate your support.

    


Alert: Doyle Drive to be closed April 27-30, 2012

Traffic Alert: Fatal Accident at Foot of Waldo Grade

Traffic on Highway 101 north of the Golden Gate Bridge at the Bridgeway (Sausalito) offramp tonight is being affected in both directions by a fatal accident that took place shortly after 8:45 PM tonight.

Southbound traffic is getting through in a single lane.  Northbound traffic was routed along Bridgeway for a while, but has now been reopened as of about 10:30 PM.

The driver of a Lexus SUV apparently lost control of her vehicle and rolled over.  She was ejected from the vehicle and landed in the northbound lanes.

If you have a friend or family member who still drives without a seat belt, hopefully this will give you ammunition to convince them to take more care and at least we can save someone else's life via this tragedy.

UPDATE:  As of 11:20 PM traffic is slow in both directions due to lane closures but still getting through.

 

 

 

    


Alert: Monday and Tuesday overnight Park Presidio Closures Postponed

Presidio Parkway
 

Why do we feel like we're in a Soap Opera?

24 hours ago we reported to you that Caltrans had alerted us that next Monday and Tuesday nights, August 9-10, there would be overnight closures of the southbound ramp from Doyle Drive to Highway 1 (Park Presidio Blvd.) adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza.

16 hours ago I drove into San Francisco and saw lots of signs saying the lanes would be closed on August 14-15.  

We just got an email from Caltrans (and thanks to their press people for trying to do the right thing) saying that the closure was postponed but that there was no new official date for the next closure and they'd let us know when there is one.

The one reassuring thing we can report from this is that once a firm decision is made the Caltrans press liaison updates us really efficiently.

At least it's easier than keeping track of whether Alejandro has returned home to beg for Karen's forgiveness, or if Will is really the illegitimate son of Patrice, Crown Prince of Liechtenstein.

The CalTrans map below shows the location of the closures.

Caltrans has a graphics-rich website with information about the project here.

Alert: Closures of SB Doyle Drive to Park Presidio Ramp Next Mon. and Tues. August 9-10

Presidio Parkway
 

The next construction-based closure of the ramp from southbound Doyle Drive to southbound Highway 1 (Park Presidio Blvd.) will NOT be on a weekend, as we have all come to expect.  Instead it will be next Monday and Tuesday nights, August 9 and 10, from 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM.

The CalTrans map below shows the location of the closures.

The alternate route to the Richmond and Sunset Districts and Highway 1 is to stay on Doyle Drive and follow it onto Lombard St., then turn right (south) on Van Ness  Blvd.  

To continue south on 101 stay on Van Ness and follow the signs.  

To return to Highway 1 and Park Presidio Blvd. take Van Ness to Geary and turn right (west).  Geary will take you about 2 miles back to where you can re-join Park Presidio (between 12th and 14th avenues.)

Caltrans has a graphics-rich website with information about the project here.
