Dumbarton Bridge will close May 25 - May 29

Bridge will be closed 10 p.m. Friday, May 25 to 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Submitted By Dumbarton Bridge Seismic Safety Project

The Dumbarton Bridge (State Route 84) is the southernmost of the highway bridges that crosses the San Francisco Bay. After serving the Bay Area for nearly three decades, the Dumbarton Bridge is undergoing a seismic retrofit to comply with all current seismic and safety design standards. The Bridge will be closed during Memorial Day Weekend 2012 to complete a major element of the seismic retrofit.

A full bridge closure is necessary in order for crews to replace the existing expansion joint on the western side of the bridge with a state-of-the-art seismic joint that will absorb and dissipate energy during a seismic event. The joint spans across all lanes of traffic; therefore, there can be no motor vehicle, pedestrian, or bicycle traffic on the bridge during this operation.

North Detour Route
Eastbound SR 84 will be closed at University Avenue and Bayfront Expressway. Motorists will have the option of using Route 237 or the San Mateo Bridge via Route 92 from Highway 101.

South Detour Route
Westbound SR 84 will be closed at Thornton Avenue and Paseo Padre Parkway. Motorists will have the option of using Route 237 or the San Mateo Bridge via Route 92 from Interstate 880.
