George Miller, Jr Memorial Bridge (Benicia-Martinez Bridge) Pedestrian/Bicycle Path


The George Miller, Jr Memorial Bridge is part of I-680 that connects Solano County to Contra Costa County, its neighbor to the south. The pedestrian/bicycle path is on the south-bound span.


The path is part of both the Bay Area Ridge Trail and the San Francisco Bay Trail.


Port of Benicia. The port specializes in shipping automobiles, and large numbers of vehicles can usually be seen parked on either side of the bridge spans.


You can see along the Carqunez Strait all the way to the Carquinez Bridge. In the foreground are buildings located in the old Benicia Arsenal..


There's a great view of Mount Diablo from the bridge.


The City of Martinez is right across the strait from Benicia..


The towers of the train trestle drawbridge that runs parallel to I-680 can be seen above the center of the span..
