The Bay Bridge
Favs: 3SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 2/73Score: 65% (30)10391 views

In 1936, the East and West communities of the Bay Area came together like never before. While ferries had long carried people across the Bay's often choppy waters, automobiles were the future of transportation. This meant local residents wanted a quick way to drive between the rapidly growing cities of San Francisco and Oakland. As expected, as soon as the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge was built in 1936, it immediately became the favorite way to travel between San Francisco and the East Bay.
Expected lifespan: 150 years
Daily average number of vehicles that use the Bay Bridge: 280,000
Daily average number of vehicles that use the Brooklyn Bridge:137,500 (5 years and 2600 days ago)
