A plan to shut down a portion of the Lefty O’Doul Bridge near AT&T Park has been pushed back a week due to the inclement weather forecast for the next several days.
The bridge, which acts as Third Street between Terry Francois and Berry streets, was set to be closed to northbound traffic starting Monday. The Public Works Department had planned on adding nonskid coating to the bridge in time for the Giants’ home opener Friday. But with rain expected for the next several days, that closure will be pushed back to 9 a.m. April 23.
The northbound section will be shut to autos until 9 a.m. April 27. The span will be open to southbound traffic; pedestrians will not be affected. Traffic controllers will direct motorists and bicyclists. Nearby Fourth Street Bridge will remain open.
Lefty O’Doul Bridge is one of The City’s most seismically deficient spans, says the nonprofit Transportation For America.
