    Did you know? Built in 1927, the Carquinez Bridge was built by two grocers to transport goods from Solano County to Contra Costa County.

    Cute miniature Bay Bridge heading out of the Bay area + Golden Gate Bridge heading in. Might seem off-putting at first, but you'll quickly warm to it after a few trips to Wine Country and Tahoe.

    Get in the two right lanes if you don't have Fastrak. It's that simple. Read the signs. Don't wait until you've reached the toll plaza to change lanes.

    Enjoy the view of the C&H Sugar Company factory as you go down the I-80 East side of the bridge.

    There's no good spot to cross the bridge (parendicular that is) unless you're good at climbing or willing to get wet

    Typically not a lot of traffic on the bridge. Good toll-approach, although chaotic bottleneck after tolls. The new span heading west is appealing to the eye.

    Get and use Fastrak. It'll save you time & the hassle of dealing with the toll people!
