Parking, driving and public transit in San Francisco will be affected Wednesday and Thursday as late Sen. Dianne Feinstein lies in state at City Hall ahead of her memorial service.

The former San Francisco mayor and United States senator will lie in state Wednesday at City Hall. The public may visit and leave condolences in a guestbook from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

The 21 Hayes inbound route to Civic Center will be rerouted along parts of Grove and McAllister streets, according to a San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency alert. The bus line will stop at Laguna and Hayes streets instead of making its regular stops along Grove Street at Laguna, Gough and Van Ness Avenue and at McAllister and Hyde. The 21 Hayes will also stop at Hyde and Grove, where riders may board for regular outbound service.

On Thursday, the Civic Center area near City Hall will be closed to traffic while a funeral for Feinstein will take place on the City Hall steps.
