Just the Other Side of the Tower

Big orange sign and big green sign for exits from Interstate 80 in San Francisco

In November 2007, extensive construction work was proceeding on the west side of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Hence, one of the exit signs is a "Big Orange Sign" for the Fifth Street exit. The other is a typical big green sign, in this case, for the Fremont Street exit. One of the western suspension towers of the bridge is in the background; from the point at which this picture was taken, we are about to cross over the center anchorage.
