New Carquinez Bridge – San Francisco, California, United States of America

The new Carquinez suspension bridge is the third bridge at this site and replaces the existing bridge, built in 1927. It carries traffic westbound on I-80.

The three-span 1,056-metre long structure was the first new major suspension bridge built in 35 years.

The bridge features two 125-metre high concrete towers, supported by 3.0 m diameter piles of 90 metres length and a 25-metre wide deck.
