The bay area is home to a handful of bridges. The outside world knows two, the Golden Gate and the Bay Bridge. I would like to introduce you to another one: the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge that connects the city of Richmond in the Contra Costa County and San Rafael of Marin County.
The sign says Richmond Bridge and that’s what the San Rafael side calls it. It is offiically called John F. McCarthy Bridge. I don’t know who he is honestly. But on the Richmond side, we call this bridge San Rafael Bridge. It is a mystery why on our side we call it San Rafael Bridge and on the other side they call it Richmond Bridge.
The bridge is double decker. The upper level is San Rafael Bound. My husband and I often cross this bridge to go to Point Reyes National Seashore.
This is a closer look at the upper deck. The bridge measures 5.5 miles, and just finished some retrofit work.
This is the shot on the lower deck on the way back to Richmond.
This is taken from Point Molate on the Richmond side looking southwest toward Marin County. San Quentin Prison just beyond the bridge on the left side when San Rafael bound.
