San Mateo Hayward Bridge
The San Mateo – Hayward Bridge (commonly called the San Mateo Bridge) is a bridge crossing California's San Francisco Bay, linking the San Francisco Peninsula with the East Bay. The bridge's west end is in Foster City, the most recent urban addition to the eastern edge of San Mateo. The east end of the bridge is in Hayward. It is the longest bridge in the San Francisco Bay Area and the 25th longest in the world by length. The bridge is owned by the state of California, and is maintained by Caltrans, the state highway agency. Further oversight is provided by the Bay Area Toll Authority.
The San Mateo Hayward Bridge carries about 93,000 cars and other vehicles on a typical day.
High-voltage power lines built by PG&E parallel the bridge all the way across the bay. They provide power to the Peninsula and San Francisco.
The toll is $5, collected westbound only.
