Alexander Avenue to stay closed until Mar. 4

Alexander Avenue, which connects Sausalito and U.S. Highway 101 to the Golden Gate Bridge, will be closed to vehicle traffic through March 4, a Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District spokeswoman said this afternoon.

Users of a bicycle and pedestrian pathway on Alexander Avenue should expect congestion and delays of thirty minutes or more while workers remove debris from Monday’s mudslide, District spokeswoman Priya Clemens said.

The District, Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the City of Sausalito made the decision to close Alexander Avenue, Clemens said.

The District has installed interchangeable message boards about the closure and notified San Francisco bicycle rental businesses about the possible impact to riders, Clemens said.
