Built in 1933. Destroyed in 2012. A big piece of Bay Area history will come crumbling down this weekend. NBC Bay Area's Cheryl Hurd is in San Francisco, where demolition work on Doyle Drive begins tomorrow.

On Friday night, Doyle Drive is coming down.

It will be an action pack weekend for construction workers.  They will be working hard to beat a Monday 5am deadline to open up a new roadway to the San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge connector.

"Doyle Drive was built in 1936.  It's old, it's seismically unsafe and it's been under construction for a little over a year," Molly Graham said.

Graham is the spokesperson for Presidio Parkway, the company over seeing the project.

The bridge and Highway one will remain open. When the road opens on Monday, traffic will shift onto a temporary bypass.

"We're asking people to stay away from the corridor.  If you need to get from Marin to San Francisco or the other way around, we're asking people to take ferries or use the Bay Bridge," Graham said.

That will be a good idea this weekend.

The Giants will be playing a series of home games starting Friday.  Tickets for the Giants ferry from Larkspur are sold out.
