Bicycle tour closing Pacifica roadways in May

The Amgen Tour of California will again be coming through Pacifica on Tuesday, May 18. As occurred last year, portions of Highway 1 will be closed to all traffic to allow the racers unimpeded access to the roadway.

This year, this stage of the race will begin at Golden Gate Park, and enter Pacifica from Skyline Boulevard. Racers are expected to arrive in Pacifica between 11:30 and 11:35 a.m.

At that time, all of southbound Highway 1 will be closed to traffic. Portions of northbound Highway 1 will also be closed to traffic, from Linda Mar Boulevard through Crespi Drive. These road closures are expected to take effect at 11:15 a.m. and the roadway is expected to be closed for 20 minutes during this event. During that period, motorists should plan any travel through Pacifica accordingly and utilize alternate routes to avoid these road closures. Motorists may avoid closures to northbound Highway 1 by taking alternate routes to Fassler Avenue.

The Pacifica Police Department will be assisting the California Highway Patrol with some of these road closures.

Permission for this race, and the authority for these road closures come from the Office of the Governor. Any comments, complaints, or concerns should be directed to that office.
