Carquinez Bridge

The Carquinez Bridge is actually two bridges on Interstate 80 that cross the Carquinez Strait between Contra Costa and Solano counties near Vallejo. An eastbound bridge that was constructed in 1958, and a westbound suspension bridge built in 2003, which carries vehicular traffic as well as bicycles and pedestrians on a separated pathway.


The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) collects tolls on the seven state-owned toll bridges in the Bay Area. On these bridges, drivers can pay their tolls with either FasTrak or cash. With FasTrak, you can use special designated lanes to get you to the toll plaza faster and drive through without having to stop to pay the toll collector. Tolls are automatically deducted from your prepaid account. To pay with cash, drivers wait in line for a toll booth collector to take their payment.
