And the next episode of the California Highways: Route by Route podcast is up. This episode focuses on the Golden Gate Bridge, which is not part of the state highway system, not Route 1 (although sometimes signed as it), not US 101 from the point of the state, US 101 from the point of view of AASHTO, and is just really cool. As always, please subscribe to our podcast in your podcast player of choice, like or favorite or subscribe to the podcast, and please leave us a (hopefully good) rating. Enjoy.

Episode 2.07 of California Highways: Route by Route continues our exploration of Route 1 by exploring an interesting gap in the route: The Golden Gate Bridge (GGB). The GGB is not part of the state highway system, and thus (from the point of view of the state) not part of either Route 1 or US 101. It is part of US 101 per AASHTO, and is run by its own district. We'll cover what was there before the bridge, the construction of the bridge, and current projects along the bridge (such as the singing bridge retrofit, the suicide barrier, and the earthquake retrofit. We'll also discuss how one pays tolls on the bridge. Looking forward, episode 2.08 will continue our exploration of Route 1 moving northward from the Marin Headlands to the Redwoods.

Ready, set, discuss.
