Golden Gate Bridge’s parking lots to be closed over Thanksgiving weekend

Residents and visitors take note: both parking lots at either side of the Golden Gate Bridge will be closed for the upcoming holiday weekend.

Personal vehicles will be restricted from using the Welcome Center parking lot on the southern side of the bridge, as well as the Vista Point parking lot on the northern side from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov 25 through Sunday, Nov 27. The Welcome Center will still be open, and buses, taxis and shuttles will be allowed to make drop-offs and pick-ups.

Caltrans is enforcing the parking restrictions in an attempt to reduce traffic on a busy travel weekend.
