Eastbound:

During the Bay Bridge Preservation Project, steel plates are placed across the westbound travel lanes so the bridge can reopen to traffic each morning. Please note:
• Overhead lane signals on the Bay Bridge’s westbound span will experience temporary outages. Drivers should stay alert, follow messages on VMS near the bridge and obey all
traffic-control devices.
• The posted speed limit for the westbound span is 45 mph throughout the duration of the project. SLOW DOWN for steel plates on the bridge.
• Motorcycles should avoid the center lane.
• One lane of the westbound span may be closed periodically for 30 minutes while crews inspect the steel plates on the bridge. This single-lane closure will take place during off-peak travel periods.
