San Mateo County has closed Skyline Bridge (the bridge atop Lower Crystal Springs Dam on Skyline Blvd. between Crystal Springs Rd. and Bunker Hill Dr.) in order to begin the bridge replacement project. The Vista Parking area, near the southern trailhead of Sawyer Camp Trail, is also closed.
While Skyline Bridge is closed through 2013, cyclists will be detoured along Crystal Springs Road to Polhemus Road and then to the Ralston Recreation Trail. Motorists have several detour options, including use of Highway 92 and Interstate 280.
San Mateo County and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) are coordinating construction projects in and around the Peninsula Watershed from autumn 2010 through 2013. For a comprehensive fact sheet about the projects and to view the detour route: http://bit.ly/cy6LRt
