California's Bridges: Bridges across the Carquinez Straits near Crockett (1)

February 1999 (38.064 deg., -122.225 deg.) Carquinez Strait Bridges 

A little east of the Richmond San Rafael Bridge are the bridges across the Carquinez Straits. This photo was taken from the west tower during construction of the suspension bridge in 2002. Next to it is a riveted cantilever truss bridge that was removed after the suspension bridge was completed. To the right of these bridges is a  newer steel truss bridge that was retrofitted for earthquakes. We'll take another look at these bridges tomorrow.
