Thousands of runners and walkers will take over the Coronado Bay Bridge on Sunday for the Navy’s 35th annual Bay Bridge Run/Walk.
The four-mile walk and run starts at 8 a.m. Participants begin their route from the Hilton San Diego Bayfront over the Coronado Bay Bridge to Tidelands Park located at One Park Blvd. in Coronado.
Due to the event, access to the San Diego-Coronado Bridge will be limited Sunday morning from 4 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Vehicle traffic will remain open for both directions on the bridge, but at reduced speeds due to cars and trucks sharing the same side of the bridge, Caltrans said.
