Memorial Day Weekend Traffic & Transit Advisory for Fisherman's Wharf
On Sunday the Golden Gate Bridge 75th anniversary celebration will take place. Celebration activities will start at 11 a.m. in the area from Fort Point to Pier 39. Fireworks showcasing the bridge, bay and surrounding parks will begin at 9:30 p.m. and can be seen between the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Mason and at PIER 39.
There are no scheduled street closures for the Embarcadero or the Fisherman’s Wharf area.
However on Sunday the 27th, in the Marina area, the streets north of Bay (west of Van Ness) and Alhambra will be closed at 8:45 PM and they may limit access earlier to residents only if the traffic is bad.
Note: All entrances to the Presidio will be closed as the MTA is anticipating major vehicle traffic in the late afternoon and early evening in the vicinity of the Marina.
In addition, they are closing the GG Bridge to vehicle traffic around 9 PM until the end of the Fireworks about 9:50.
Supplemental Bus Service
SFMTA will provide supplemental bus service on the following bus routes to the event area from 1 p.m. until after the event:
•28L 19th Avenue Limited
•43 Masonic (6 to 8 p.m. only)
Special Bus Service
The 47L Van Ness Limited special bus service will be provided beginning at 1 p.m. between Civic Center and the Marina. This bus route will only serve the following stops:
•Civic Center BART/Muni Station, Grove and Larkin streets
•Van Ness Avenue and Geary Street
•Van Ness Avenue and Sacramento Street
•Fillmore Street and Bay Street
Regular Muni fares will apply.
Event participants are encouraged to walk, bike and take public transportation to the event. Delays are expected due to heavy pedestrian activity and traffic congestion throughout the celebration and after the firework show.
BART will be ramping up service in a number of ways to accommodate many events going on during the busy Memorial Day weekend, Friday, May 25 - Monday, May 28.
On the actual Memorial Day holiday day of Monday, May 28, BART will run on a Sunday schedule (meaning service starts around 8 am, and because it is a parking holiday on Monday, May 28, parking permit and fee requirements are not enforced in station parking facilities that day).
Some other things to consider this weekend:
The Dumbarton Bridge will be closed all weekend for seismic strengthening and Muni's N-Judah line will be starting a nine-day shutdown on Friday.
