Westbound lanes of San Mateo Bridge closed 5 nights for repairs

SAN MATEO, Calif. (KGO) -- It's going to be slow going for those crossing the San Mateo Bridge at night this week.

Caltrans will close two lanes of the span starting tonight and for the next five nights in order to make permanent repairs to the bridge deck.

Crews will be repairing a hole that opened up on the westbound deck, just east of the high-rise section last month.

Only two of the three westbound lanes will be closed. The first lane be closed at 7 p.m. The second lane will close at 10 p.m. The third lane will remain open at all times. The two lanes will remain closed until 5 a.m. every night during construction.
