"Bluetiful steel !" Bay Bridge Tip by Muya

Bay Bridge, San Francisco: 27 reviews and 39 photos

  Bay Bridge from Pier 7
by Muya

Less famous than its red-orange cousin, San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge also deserves our attention. I was surprised at its elegance, and found myself taking almost as many pictures of it as of the Golden Gate?

It is a toll bridge which spans San Francisco Bay and links the cities of Oakland and San Francisco, right on Interstate 80.
The Bay Bridge has two particularities compared to other bridges : it is the longest steel high-level bridge in the world, and its foundations extend deeper below water than any other bridge built by man.
It was opened to vehicular traffic in 1936.

From Telegraph hill or along the Embarcadero, you will have fantastic views on this bridge!
