When the bridge reopens, on Tuesday, September 8th, there will no longer be a gradual veer to the left as you approach the tunnel on the upper deck, heading into San Francisco. Instead there will be a sharp S curve.

The agency is giving an early heads up because the curve will probably mean a slower commute as drivers get used to the change. The speed limit will also be lowered on the upper deck from 50-mph, down to 45-mph.
