Rising tides: Regional leaders look to shore up Bay Area’s transportation network

Published Tuesday February 21

By 2050, the toll plazas at 3 of the Bay Area’s 4 major bridges, including the Bay Bridge, could be underwater during severe storms. Railroad tracks near the Suisun Bay between Interstate 680 and Point Chicago would also flood intermittently. Bay water would cover the runways at the Oakland and San Francisco airports, and in the South Bay, the campuses of Facebook and Google could find themselves regularly flooded.

“If you take a map out and see where we put all our roads and much of our transit system, it’s along the bay shoreline,” she said. “And that makes the transportation network almost uniquely vulnerable.”
