Although making the trip to San Francisco may be a chore this weekend, we'd like to guide you through the labyrinth of detours and alternative modes of transportation to make this Labor Day weekend in the Bay Area as enjoyable as possible.

Even though a major transportation artery into San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, is closed for repairs this weekend, motorists and travelers should not be timid about using their extended weekends to travel to one of the world's most popular cities. Starting today at 8 p.m. through Tuesday at 5 a.m., the Bay Bridge will be closed for repairs.

    We live in Marin, but weekend on the Delta loop area near Isleton. We will arrive tonight and not leave till Tuesday-if the "coast is clear". I just have to believe its going to be a real mess, so why bother?
