I commuted across this bridge for years and especially love seeing the birds in the early morning or dusk. In the evenings the hawks are often stooping for their last prey-meal before dark. Since the wetlands are on the Pacific Flyway, seasonal bird visitors like...More

The best I can say about the bridge is, it is a wonderful way to get from point "A", one side of the bay to point "B" the other side of the bay. Vast improvement from the original Family owned Dumbarton that was a combination...More
