Upcoming Special Events

Third Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project
Third Street Bridge ("Lefty O'Doul Bridge")
The Third Street Bridge, also known as the "Lefty O'Doul Bridge", is scheduled for rehabilitation work to sustain the integrity of the bridge and to address corrosion issues. The project will involve; repairs or replacement of damaged steel members, welds, concrete counterweights, support piles, bridge fenders, spot removal of rust and associated priming and recoating, removal and replacement of the steel bridge deck and other associated work. This is a unique project that will involve the use of underwater divers, barges, rafts, temporary installation of protective barriers and containment curtains.  Construction activity on the main rehabilitation phase is anticipated to begin in early 2018 and is anticipated to last for approximately 18 months.  At some points during the rehabilitation and construction phase, access to the bridge may be limited or closed to pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle traffic. We will be working closely with surrounding residents and businesses in the area to coordinate and minimize impacts during these anticipated closures. The bridge will remain open to pedestrians during San Francisco Giants home games.  Nighttime and weekend construction activity may be required. Full traffic plan with detours and alternative routes will be made available as the project nears.  *Please note that the construction schedule is subject to change due to rain, equipment breakdown, and/or unforeseen field conditions. Please see posted "No Parking" barricade signs for exact parking restrictions during construction.
