If you're going to San Francisco this Saturday night or meeting a late flight at SFO, we suggest you get back across the Golden Gate Bridge before midnight if possible.
Doyle Drive will be cut down to one lane in each direction for the Presidio Parkway construction work adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge toll plaza from 10:00 PM Saturday night to 8:00 AM Sunday morning. This effectively makes Highway 101 and the Golden Gate Bridge a 2-lane highway for eight hours. The back-ups could get very long, especially northbound from 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM.
The CalTrans map below shows that the side streets from the toll plaza parking lots will remain open, but they also have very limited capacity for relieving traffic.
The ramp from Doyle Dr. to southbound Park Presidio Dr. through the MacArthur tunnel is open, but you'll have to get through the narrows of Doyle Drive to reach it after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.
CalTrans is responsible for Doyle Drive, while the Bridge District sets the lane dividers on the Golden Gate Bridge.
The only alternate route is to use the Bay Bridge and Richmond - San Rafael Bridge to avoid the Golden Gate Bridge and Doyle Drive completely.
