Construction work could slow down travelers on the Bay Bridge and BART this weekend.
Caltrans will shut down some eastbound lanes on the Bay Bridge from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Saturday and Sunday because it is reconfiguring some lanes as part of its ongoing effort to rebuild the span to make it more seismically safe.
Westbound traffic will not be impacted.
The repair work means that riders who use the tube to cross the San Francisco Bay could face delays of between 20 and 40 minutes.
While the work is being performed, passengers who are traveling from stations in San Francisco and the Peninsula toward Dublin or Fremont will need to transfer at the 12th Street station in Oakland to a special Dublin- or Fremont-bound train.
BART customers traveling from Fremont or Dublin to San Francisco and the Peninsula should board their normal trains but those trains will be diverted to the MacArthur station in Oakland.
Riders will then have to get off their train at the 12th Street station in Oakland and go downstairs to transfer to a San Francisco-bound train.
This weekend, the BART repair work will begin after the last train Friday but the ending time will vary.
The work on Friday night will end at 7:30 a.m. Saturday but on the work on Saturday and Sunday nights will end at 2:30 p.m. the following day.
The work will be done at similar hours next weekend, June 3-5.
The Friday night work will end at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday and the Saturday night work will end at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. No work is scheduled for that Sunday night.
