In earthquake-prone San Francisco/San Jose region, motorists in the south Bay Area can drive safely knowing the Dumbarton Bridge is retrofit to withstand a likely earthquake in the region.The toll crossing over the lower San Francisco Bay is an important bridge utilized by motorists connecting Alameda County and the Silicon Valley. Caltrans acted on seismic studies that showed the Dumbarton Bridge was in need of a retrofit for possible future earthquakes.
