At 11:00PM on Monday, September 22, 2014 the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA), together with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure, Successor Agency to the Redevelopment Agency (OCII), will commence construction of the westbound I-80 Folsom Street Off-Ramp Realignment Project. The realignment of the off-ramp – which requires closure of the facility from September 22 through March 2015 – will improve the pedestrian environment along Fremont Street and increase the developable area of the Transbay Redevelopment Plan parcel at the intersection of Folsom and Fremont Streets.
At 11 p.m. Monday September 22, SFCTA contractor O.C. Jones & Sons, Inc. will close the Folsom Street Off-Ramp from Westbound I-80 from the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge. Motorists will be directed to utilize either of two detour options to access Folsom Street:
Option #1: From West-Bound I-80 (From Oakland/Treasure Island) take the Harrison Street Exit and connect with Folsom Street at Fremont Street.
Option #2: From Westbound I-80 (from Oakland/Treasure Island) take the Fremont Street Exit and proceed LEFT at Fremont Street, turn LEFT onto Howard Street, then turn LEFT onto First Street which will connect with Folsom Street.
