We are going to OC this weekend. leaving from Virginia. What time should we be across the bridge to keep out of the traffic
I have found crossing anytime on a Friday or Saturday evening after 8pm is the BEST time. I know that does not work for everyone b/c of check in times, but if u can swing it its traffic free the entire way down!
Also, I always check the bay bridge website to see if anything is going on a few hours before we leave, and I also keep a eye on the bridge cam up until we are ready to walk out the door.
Go early if you can to beat the traffic.
Before 10 am on Saturday, earlier is even better.
We crossed on Sat June 2nd at about 11AM not bad then, but it is early in the summer, so that may make a difference.
