SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Demolition of an aged, seismically unsafe approach to the Golden Gate Bridge is complete, and officials say they are on schedule to have a temporary roadway in place.
Construction crews destroyed the old skyway known as Doyle Drive and on Sunday were laying the replacement road expected to be open to traffic by 5 a.m. Monday.
Traffic throughout the San Francisco Bay area has been affected by the closure, but California transit officials say there was a 50 percent drop in cars coming in and out of the city on Friday, when the approach was closed.
Officials have doubled the number of ferries between San Francisco and Marin County to help ease congestion.
