Richmond -San Rafael Bridge / San Quentin
18-JUN-2013

Richmond -San Rafael Bridge / San Quentin

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.
