Oakland Bay Bridge
San Francisco Bay
Oakland, California 94601
Voice: 510-839-9000

The Bay Bridge opened for traffic in 1936. In 1989, the powerful Loma Prieta earthquake collapsed a section of the east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The bridge was quickly repaired and rebuilt with a resulting design that is not only striking, but also is uniquely suited to the Bay's challenging geology. With its tower that rises 525 feet above the water and asymmetrical profile, the new bridge is destined to become a distinctive landmark for the San Francisco Bay Area.
