The Golden Gate Bridge west sidewalk will be closed on Monday, September 7 due to operational needs over the Labor Day holiday. People biking across the Bridge will be redirected to the east sidewalk, which will remain open for bicyclists and pedestrians throughout the weekend.
The west sidewalk is typically reserved on weekends and holidays for people biking across the Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge District (District) is asking people who bike and walk on the east sidewalk this weekend to exercise extra caution as they share the sidewalk.
Weekend and holiday parking lot closures will also remain in effect on Monday, September 7. The southeast visitor and Vista Point parking lots will be closed to vehicles from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. as a precautionary measure to avoid crowding during the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place public health orders. Additional parking lot closures may be implemented for social distancing and safety reasons. Visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings and practice social distancing when at the Bridge.
Bridge visitorship has declined dramatically under the COVID-19 pandemic and regional shelter-in-place orders. To further reduce crowding, the District has also placed ample signage around entrances to the Bridge to encourage people to stay home and practice physical distancing if they must be out in public. Bridge security staff will continue to monitor pedestrian and bicycle traffic to ensure social distancing is maintained on the Bridge sidewalks.
