SAUSALITO, CA - MAY 08: Cars drive northbound on the Golden Gate Bridge May, 8, 2008 in Sausalito, California. The bridge toll could rise $1 to $7 by September 2009 if the Golden Gate bridge, Highway and Transportation District board of directors approve the increase for peak travel times and on weekends and holidays. The increase would come on top of an already scheduled rise in tolls this September from $5 to $6. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

Construction crews will be on the Golden Gate Bridge today getting started on a new renovation project. The San Francisco Examiner says crews are putting up scaffolding to start work on the bridge's cable renovation project.

The work will cause trouble for cyclists going over the bridge. The scaffolding will narrow the bikes-only sidewalk to 7 ft. meaning many cyclists may have to walk their bikes over the middle section of the bridge.

Phase one of the renovation project will last a few weeks. Crews are working to re-coat the bridge's cables.
