Fleet Week "Blue Angels" activities usually bring traffic to a standstill in and around the waterfront areas of Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). Due to traffic congestion from Fleet Week, parking will be extremely limited on October 9 and 10. It is highly recommended to use public transit (MUNI), bicycle, taxi or carpool when visiting these areas. All parking at Fort Point is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis for people with a valid ADA state placard or license plate.

The areas most affected include Crissy Field, Fort Point and Lands End (San Francisco), Conzelman Road (Marin Headlands), and East Road and Sommerville Road (Fort Baker). The National Park Service (NPS) Law Enforcement is coordinating with the California Highway Patrol, CalTrans and other law enforcement agencies to protect visitors, manage traffic and parking, and protect the resources during this very popular event.

As in past years, many access roads will be closed to vehicle traffic for visitor safety, and some park areas closed to protect sensitive habitat and historic structures. The closures include Marina Boulevard and various parking areas along Crissy Field and upper Fort Mason. This year, Conzelman Road from McCullough Road to Field Road will remain closed to all traffic because of ongoing construction as part of Project Headlands. The event closures in San Francisco as well as on the section of Conzelman Road from Alexander Avenue to McCullough Road and Fort Baker roadways generally go into effect approximately one hour before the Blue Angels perform (around 3:00 PM) and last approximately 45-minutes after the end of each air show.

For same day traffic information, please call 5-1-1.
