  • Golden Gate Bridge (as of January 4 at 3:30 pm)
    • patrols and security staff are monitoring the wind direction and speed. As the Bridge is oriented north-south, the greatest concern is for sustained gusts of winds above 40 to 45 mph from the west or east. If wind speeds increase and it is deemed necessary, buffer lane(s) may be added between north and southbound traffic lanes. Current lane configuration is 3 northbound lanes, 2 southbound lanes and 1 buffer lane. For perspective, the Bridge has only been closed three times in 70 years due to high winds in the range of 65 to 70 mph.

Please tune to KCBS radio for pertinent updates throughout the storm and visit www.511.org for current traffic and transit conditions.
