Richmond - San Rafael Bridge
13-JUN-2010 Bill Taylor

Richmond - San Rafael Bridge

Originally a part of State Route 17, the bridge is now part of Interstate 580. Upon its opening, the Richmond – San Rafael bridge was the last bridge across San Francisco Bay to replace a previous ferry service, leaving the Benicia–Martinez Ferry across Carquinez Strait as the only remaining auto ferry in the Bay Area (it would be replaced by a bridge in 1962). Each deck of the bridge has 2 lanes and a shoulder; westbound traffic rides on the upper deck, while eastbound traffic rides on the lower deck.

Great Image Bill! It's amazing how the cars just vanish into the fluid blurr of red and white ribbons.

Nice that the bridge has the traffic divided coming to and fro. It give a nice solid ribbon effect for both white and red lights. Super POV and excellent work. V
