Traffic Management Projects

As a fixed, six-lane roadway, the Bridge cannot be easily expanded to accommodate traffic growth. Instead, the Bridge has been the scene of a number of nationally-recognized and innovative projects designed to improve the flow of traffic.

January 10-12, 2015 - The Golden Gate Bridge became safer for drivers when the District installed a new Moveable Median Barrier (MMB) to virtually eliminate the possibility of a head-on collision.

March 27, 2013 - The Golden Gate Bridge made the switch to All Electronic Tolling.

July 13, 2000 - FasTrak electronic toll collection started on the Golden Gate Bridge. Read more about the development of FasTrak and the market share growth here.

October 29, 1963 - Reversible lanes were inaugurated on the roadway. Their use greatly aids the flow of traffic during the heavy morning and evening commute hours and during weekend tourist periods. At any given time, the number of lanes northbound or southbound may be adjusted.

October 19, 1968 - The Golden Gate Bridge converted to one-way toll collection, collecting tolls only southbound into San Francisco. The Bridge was the first in the world to offer one-way toll collection. The system proved so successful that is has since been instituted on many bridges throughout the world.

August 15, 1970 - The Golden Gate Ferry system launched followed by Golden Gate Transit bus system on January 1, 1972. These public transit systems were started as traffic management solutions to growing congestion on the Golden Gate Bridge.
