Golden Gate Bridge Toll Booth #5 will be shutting down Tuesday for seismic work and will remain closed for a month. In order to accommodate the work, the lanes adjacent to the toll booth will also be closed. Lane #5 will be closed for the duration of the retrofit work and lane #6 will also be closed at night from 7 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.
During the modification of the toll booths and canopy for the Moveable Median Barrier project, engineers determined the structure needed to be retrofitted. A contractor will be performing minor demolition work and adding steel bracing to several toll booths over the course of a few months.
Similar work has already been completed with Toll Booth #7.
When the retrofit work at Toll Booth #5 is complete, the same work will be done at Toll Booth #3. That work is also projected to take about a month to complete, and will affect the lanes adjacent to the toll booth.
The Toll Plaza clock will be replaced once all other retrofit work is complete, likely by early summer. Driving lanes #7 and #8 will open once the Doyle Drive reconfiguration is complete. That work is expected to be finished in the spring.
