Bay Bridge Closure

The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge that connects those two cities has been indefinitely closed due to the failure of an earlier repair to the bridge. As of tonight, nobody knows when the bridge will reopen. This should not directly affect most people coming to San Jose for WFC. San Jose is fifty miles south of San Francisco and Oakland, and the Bay Bridge is not in the direct line of travel for most people that might be driving to the convention.

Do be aware that if your travel plans involve tourism before or after the convention and driving in the San Francisco-Oakland area, you may be affected by this closure on account of it is the main highway link between the two cities and you may want to revisit your planned routes to avoid the closure. However, if you are coming only to San Jose and do not plan to drive in the San Francisco and/or Oakland areas, we do not expect the Bay Bridge closure to have a significant impact on your travel plans.
