About the Bay Bridge

The Bay Bridge is a bridge that spans the San Francisco Bay in Northern California. The official name for the bridge is the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The bridge is part of the Interstate 80 route that links San Francisco and Oakland, which is traversed by an average of 240,000 vehicles daily.

The bridge was conceptualized as far back as the gold rush days in California. However, the construction of the bridge officially commenced in 1933. The bridge was designed by Architect Charles H. Purcell. The Bay Bridge officially opened in November of 1936 (three years after it started construction) and just six months prior to the launching of the Golden Gate Bridge, which is another iconic bridge in San Francisco.

During the 1989 earthquake in Northern California, which registered 6.9 magnitude on the Richter scale, one section of the bridge collapsed. The bridge was closed for more than a month in order to repair this damaged section. It re-opened to the public in November of that same year.

The Bay Bridge has its own bicycle and pedestrian path for those who want to enjoy the views from the bridge. This makes it ideal for tourists who would like to explore this part of San Francisco by bike or by walking. There are many other notable tourist attractions near the Bay Bridge such as the Treasure Island Flea Market and the Oakland Museum of California. Tourists can also treat themselves to a view of the Bay Lights at night.
