SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Doyle Drive was closed for an extended weekend, from Thursday, July 9 at 10:00 p.m. - Sunday, July 12 at 9:00 p.m., to finalize roadway connections and transfer traffic to the new permanent roadway.

Drivers faced delays on Highway 101 and Highway 1 near the Golden Gate Bridge starting the evening of Monday, June 22. It was all ahead of the big closure on July 9 when Highway 101 was shut down for three full days to allow crews to connect traffic lanes to the new permanent roadway.

A couple of lanes were closed overnight, starting from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m., so crews could install overhead signs for the Doyle Drive project.

Park Presidio officials closed Marina Gate, the entrance to Old Mason Road off of Marina Boulevard.
