Good news for people who use the Doyle Drive approach to the Golden Gate Bridge. Portions of the new Doyle Drive roadway and tunnel are now expected to be ready to open by Memorial Day.

The seismic retrofitting project has been ongoing for the past two years, leaving frustrated bridge commuters facing a series of detours. Now Caltrans says those temporary detours will be demolished sometime before Memorial Day.

However, there will be a complete road closure during one upcoming weekend to finalize the new route.

A meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Mill Valley Community Center to talk about those closures.
