Doyle Drive approach to GG Bridge opens ahead of schedule

Doyle Drive in San Francisco reopened at 9 p.m. Sunday, eight hours ahead of schedule, project officials said.

The south access road to the Golden Gate Bridge was scheduled to open at 5 a.m. Monday, but construction crews did not encounter problems that could have slowed down the work.

“It will be a new driving experience for everybody Monday morning,” Graham said. “The views are stunning.”

Graham said drivers will rise up on low viaducts, which provide great views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Doyle Drive is the southern approach to the Golden Gate Bridge. The road was rebuilt to make it withstand a large earthquake, project officials said.

Graham is asking drivers to be patient with any delays during the next two weeks as people get used to the new road.Doyle DriveGolden Gate BridgeSan FranciscoTransit
