Transit officials are urging commuters to take public transportation when the Bay Bridge shuts down for five days starting this Wednesday at 8pm. And they're warning drivers to expect significant delays in and out of San Francisco. We'll discuss commute options during the closure and look ahead to the much-anticipated opening of the new eastern span.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Andrew Gordan, Bay Bridge Spokesperson, Metropolitan Transportation Commission
  • Dan Brekke, editor at KQED Radio News
  • Randy Rentschler, director of legislation and public affairs at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area
