Although not as famous as its neighbor across the water, this bridge is impressive in its own right. Great views to enjoy!

So this structure has been under construction for over 4 years now. I am looking forward to its being finished. None the less, it is a beautiful well built suspension bridge. Awesome awesome stuff.
It is broken down into two halves and is a double decker to increase the carrying capacity! There is also a lil stop over called Yerba Buena Island that it goes through.
The oakland side is currently being rebuilt and is where the construction has been ongoing for years now. The SF side has not been placed under construction at this point.
The bridge has 5 lanes going in each direction does not allow any spectators, tourists, cyclists, hikers, etc on it at all. When the new section from Yerba Buena Island to Oakland is completed, there will be pedestrian and cyclist access I believe. At least it looks like there is a pedestrian walkway on it!

Oakland Bay Bridge is our less pretty grand bridge in the Bay. Connecting Oakland with San Francisco, the double-decker bridge is as intimidating as it is awe-inspiring.
An eyeful of gray is what you’ll get when you see it up close. Compared to the vibrant Golden Gate Bridge, it certainly seems less appealing. However, this bridge serves its purpose well, connecting with Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island along the way.
Currently under renovation, the older section of the bridge was shifted to connect with a new addition, allowing construction workers to build while keeping the roadways functional. The effort is ambitious and the costs keep increasing, making this a real trial for the planners in charge.
When you’ve been away from San Francisco for awhile, there’s nothing quite like driving back on the top level of the Bay Bridge at night, while being welcomed by the downtown city lights ahead.Recommended for:History Buffs

Beginning on the Oakland side the Bay Bridge plays 2nd cousin to the Golden Gate bridge connecting the other side of the city. Even though not known it is a fun and long ride. Here you can catch full views of the city.

The "Other" famous bridge, it may not get the recognition of it's older sister just up the road but this bridge is just as beautiful and adds to the cities skyline. And for the next two years the Bay Bridge has added a light show that begins at dusk.
