Cyclists and pedestrians will have to share the east sidewalk of the Golden Gate Bridge for longer than expected.
Since January, the bridge district and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy have been working to improve walking trails and access near the span, forcing the closure of the west sidewalk, which is normally exclusively reserved for cyclists.
The project was originally scheduled to be finished by April 1, but the bridge district pushed it back to mid-May.
Mary Currie, a spokeswoman for the bridge district, said the work has been more labor intensive than originally anticipated. Recent rains also caused delays, she said.
Ideally, the bridge district and conservancy hope to have the work completed by Bike to Work Day on May 10, Currie said.
