For the next three nights, as the San Francisco Giants face off with the Los Angeles Dodgers at AT&T Park, traffic near the ballpark will be rerouted during and after the games.
Each of the three games begins at 7:15 p.m., and beginning in the top of the seventh inning, traffic on several streets near Third and King streets will be affected, police said.
King Street will be shut down to traffic in both directions between Fourth Street and the intersection of King and Townsend streets near The Embarcadero.
Taxis will still be able to pick up fares on Third Street between King and Townsend streets.
Drivers traveling north on Third Street from south of the Third Street Bridge will not be able to continue north, police said. All traffic from the parking lots south of that bridge will be diverted south on Third Street toward 16th Street for freeway access.
Second Street will be closed in both directions for the block between Townsend and King streets, except for Major League Baseball shuttles and South Beach Harbor parking lot traffic, police said.
Berry Street will be closed to all traffic eastbound from Fourth Street except for authorized MLB shuttles and residential traffic.
Traffic leaving the ballpark driveway at Second and King streets will be directed east on The Embarcadero, police said.
After the game, taxi traffic will also be restricted to taxi stands on the west side of Second Street and on Third Street, both between King and Townsend streets.
