Two lanes of San Mateo Bridge closed for five nights


OAKLAND (KRON)— Two westbound lanes of the San Mateo Bridge will be closed for five consecutive nights beginning on Tuesday.

Maintenance crews will start work at 7 p.m. and go through 5 a.m. on July 12, 13, 14, and 15.

Only one lane will close at 7 p.m., then a second will close at 10 p.m.. The third lane will remain open at all times

The repair work hours will change on Saturday, July, 16 to 7 p.m. through 9 a.m.

The California Department of Transportation says it is making permanent repairs to the bridge.

A hole opened up in June on the westbound deck, and workers were not able to repair it using a simple patch job. Crews did put a metal plate over the hole, so it was safe to reopen traffic.
