Grizzly Peak Blvd closed

Grizzly Peak will apparently be closed this weekend due to "fire concerns". I looked up a couple of sources online, and I'm getting conflicting information. One says it will be closed all the way from Skyline to Centennial, another says Centennial to Fish Ranch. One says closed all weekend (5a Sat to 5a Sun), one says from 5p Sat to 5a Sun. Anyone heard anything about this or know what is or is not closed, and when?

No "non-local" cars, bikes, or pedestrians will be allowed on Saturday for 24 hours starting at 5:00 AM, according to this link from the City of Oakland. Regarding who is "local" and who isn't, the article doesn't say whether compliance is on the honor system, or there's a cop at every intersection on Grizzly Peak checking ID's. I was riding up there yesterday and there were probably a thousand "no parking" signs stapled to every available tree or telephone pole..

The Fire and Police departments continue to work on plans to maintain safety in the Very High Fire Severity Zone. In response to significant regional concerns about fire safety and emergency vehicle access, the Fire Department and Police Department have elected to close Grizzly Peak Blvd to all non-local automobile, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic between Skyline and Claremont/Fish Ranch Rd. from 05:00am July 4 through 05:00am July 5th.

Lol now this is even a different closure zone. Claremont to Skyline, but not to Centennial? Oh well I'll just avoid the area altogether...

I rode up there today around 3:00. Oakland PD was stationed at Skyline and GP and just waved me through. Berkeley PD was in charge of the section from Fish Ranch to Centennial and again they just waved me through. Not sure how the rules changed from "no bikes" but wasn't going to complain. Glorious car-free ride on Grizzly Peak. They should do this every weekend.
