SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Golden Gate Bridge lanes were not moved during Tuesday morning’s commute, as crews repaired damage to the movable median barrier.
According to a statement from the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway & Transportation District, a broken section of the barrier was replaced around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. Two lanes on either side of the barrier were closed as crews made the repair.
Crews discovered a section of the barrier was broken during the last move at 1:30 p.m. Monday. The barrier was out of alignment and unable to be moved, said the spokesperson.
The bridge district said the cause of the damage appeared to have been from a passing vehicle.
Three lanes were open in both the northbound and southbound directions during Tuesday morning’s commute, instead of the usual four southbound lanes and two northbound lanes.
The barrier, which prevents drivers from veering into lanes going in the opposite direction, was installed in early 2015.
