Alameda County has extended the High Street Bridge closure hours until 8:30 p.m. to enable timely completion of bridge repairs. The bridge will close to all vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic Friday, Nov. 20 and Monday to Wednesday Nov. 23 to 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. There will also be some limitations to marine traffic. The US Coast Guard will communicate this information in its weekly “Coast Guard Local Notices to Mariners.”
The Park Street Bridge remains completely closed to pedestrians, bicycle and motor vehicles from 8:30 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday until Thursday, Aug. 13. A detour will rout vehicles over the Fruitvale Bridge.
The closures will also affect vessel traffic on the estuary; large vessels that need both the bridge’s leaves open will be required to provide at least two hours’ advance notice.
