    One of the few double deck bridges in the Bay Area. Great route that takes you to Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island and straight into Oakland. Traffic on this bridge tends to be very congested.

    The entire bridge still IS the bay bridge, just this one span was renamed. And I bet you can't say who it was named for before, so don't let it get you so down. The bridge is still the bay bridge.

    Don't take pictures while driving... You'll get a ticket. Also don't speed on the pedestrian bridge... You'll get a ticket too.
