SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Planned right-wing rallies and counter protests that are planned in San Francisco this weekend have prompted street closures and caused officials to alter schedules for public transportation. Here's a look at the traffic and transit impact:

BREAKING: All closures related to Crissy Field have been lifted. Protesters are moving through San Francisco near Alamo Square, Market Street, Harvey Milk Plaza, and various other areas. Please avoid those areas. We will be updating this post with the latest information available.

Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge southern parking lots and visitor amenities will be closed on Saturday, August 26, 2017.

The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District strongly advises visitors to avoid the south end of the bridge during the closures.

All parking lots on the south end of the Bridge will close at 9:00 p.m. on Friday evening, August 25, 2017 and expected to re-open at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday.

The Golden Gate Transit bus stops adjacent to the Toll Plaza will be closed from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday. The nearest bus stops are located at Richardson & Francisco in San Francisco, and at Spencer Avenue bus pads and along Alexander Avenue in Marin County.

No tour buses, public transit, or personal vehicles will be permitted to access the parking lots during this closure.

Golden Gate Bridge sidewalks will be open to pedestrians and bicyclists, but the National Park Service will close all routes through Crissy Field.

SFMTA will not run Muni public bus service to the Golden Gate Bridge on Saturday.

On the north end of the Bridge, restrictions are in place for the Vista Point parking lot from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Vista Point will be available to tour buses only during those hours.

Please note there is no access to the right-wing rally event from the Golden Gate Bridge by vehicle, walking, or bicycle. All roads to the event are closed from this location.

The following Muni lines will operate by Muni buses: California Cable Car; Powell-Mason Cable Car; Powell-Hyde Cable Car and F Market & Wharves.

The following Muni routes will be re-routed: 22 Fillmore; 28 19th Avenue; 30 Stockton; 43 Masonic and 45 Union/Stockton.

The following Muni routes may also be re-routed, depending on changing conditions: E Embarcadero; F Market & Wharves; 5 Fulton; 19 Polk and 21 Hayes.

Muni bus shuttles will be available after the Crissy Field events from Marina Boulevard to the Ferry Building.

To facilitate needed adjustments throughout the transportation system and to provide the necessary service to keep people moving, city staff will closely monitor the situation and will restore service as soon as nearby areas are cleared.

Impact in Civic Center neighborhood:

For events in the Civic Center area, there are no plans for street closures, but parking will not be allowed on all streets around the Plaza or in the garage.

During the course of the event, personnel from the SFMTA and the San Francisco Police Department will be on site to direct traffic. To ensure public safety, SFPD personnel may decide street closures around the event area are necessary.
