Lane Map of San Francisco Area Freeways

Thanks to J Church at SSP
*The Black(and red) Circles denote the number of lanes in that particular spot(both directions)
*The white ovals denote the highway number
We dont have "superwides" I guess-but the network covers a huge area that transports 6 Million cars daily

Incredible! I especially like the sections that cross the bay. The SF-Oak bayBridge contains about the most impressive section of freeway (and most scenic) u'll find anywhere.

Cool map. It's similar to Vancouver, not that many in the CBD. Maybe we can do a series of maps like this of other cities?

The bridge itself is 10 lanes(5 eastbound(lower deck) and 5 westbound(upper deck))








The Toll Plaza is a monster, traffic can back up for miles on 3-4 different freeways leading to this spot

Why is the traffic that bad on the toll plaza? Don't they have electronic tags?

The Bay Bridge is one of the worst congested bottlenecks in the US. So many cars going through something like 20 toll booths trying to get on a bridge with only five lanes. One car stall at the toll plaza at rush hour and that causes a traffic backup for miles. SF is notoriously freeway unfriendly. Only two freeways cut through the south-south-east of the city. The rest of the city is all street travel.

The worst day to travel by car in or out of San Francisco is the day before Thanksgiving. One time I was in SF trying to get home. It took me 4 hours to get home 25 miles away.

I remember, it was in the middle of March and the we waited two hours at that toll booth! And it was snowing! The people actually got out of their cars to touch the snow!
