Policy: Transportation, No. 3

" If a route must be located across the Bay or a certain waterway, the following provisions should apply:The crossing should be placed on a bridge or in a tunnel, not on solid fill.Bridges should provide adequate clearance for vessels that normally navigate the waterway beneath the bridge. Toll plazas, service yards, or similar facilities should not be located on new fill and should be located far enough from the Bay shoreline to provide adequate space for maximum feasible public access along the shoreline. To reduce the need for future Bay crossings, any new Bay crossing should be designed to move the largest number of travelers possible by employing technology and operations that increase the efficiency and capacity of the infrastructure, accommodating non-motorized transportation and, where feasible, providing public transit facilities."
