If you are in the East Bay on President’s Day weekend, and want to drive to San Francisco, you are gonna have to fill up the tank before you get on the freeway. Unfortunately the Bay Bridge is being shut down for the latest and greatest repairs at 8pm on February 17th and re-opening at 5am on Tuesday February 21st. This means 3.5 days of driving south to the San Mateo bridge if you have to take your car.
On the flip side their could be a weather issue. It seems the repair they are making this go round requires good weather, so the closure could be cancelled if mother nature doesn’t cooperate. All you need to do is to check out http://baybridgeinfo.org/. on the 17th to see if they are still on schedule. If all goes well, and the rain clouds don’t show their faces, I will see you in traffic on Monday morning!
