California's Bridges: Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco Bay (1)

1999 (37.818 deg, -122.478 deg.) Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge built in 1937 with a 4200 ft long main span. It carries traffic between the City of San Francisco and Marin County over a narrow strait where San Francisco Bay empties into the Pacific. It's the only toll bridge in San Francisco Bay that is not owned and managed by Caltrans. Instead, it is owned by the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, whose responsibilities extend to the single bridge that towers over their headquarters.
