Update: Sausalito city crews got one lane of Bridgeway open at about 2:30 AM. Thanks to the people who worked so late to re-open the roadway under such tough conditions. The photo above from mid-day Monday shows continuing work by City crews.
A mudslide on Bridgeway tonight has closed the southbound lanes between Nevada St.and Spring St. (the 2300 block of Bridgeway). This is where Bridgeway goes over a small ridge above the area where the Sausalito Art Festival is held, and there is an embankment rather than buildings on the uphill side of the street.
The landslide happened just before 9:00 PM, and thus far we have received no reports of damage to homes or structures.
We have a map of the easiest detour around the problem below. When you pass the Bay Model the road jogs right andthen passes through the narrow parking lot that parallels Bridgeway to re-connect with Marinship Way, since both ends of Marinship Way leading into the Bay Model are one way streets. This detour works southbound, but the northbound road is no longer open between the Bay Model and Marinship Park.
City crews are working to clear the mud and re-open the road. Sausalito Police have not yet been given an estimated time for the re-opening.Thanks to the Sausalito PD for alerting the media.
Note: In the map below Google Maps would not trace the right route for cars so I marked it as walking. This route does work when you’re driving (southbound only), and I use it all the time to get to my office.
