This is what remains of the overpass over Fremont Street in San Francisco. The Fremont Street exit from I-80 has been reconfigured, and removed the last remnants of the former Embarcadero Freeway. This work leaves behind the “bridge to nowhere” visible in this picture, set against the contemporary buildings of the area where SOMA (South of Market) meets the Financial District.
This image was taken in May of this year, and posted today as a shout-out to a friend.
I find such signs confusing. What is that arrow under the pedestrian supposed to mean Duck LOL
The bridge to nowhere looks so forlorn and forgotten hanging there like that.
Things sure have changed since I lived there! I’d like to go back one of these days! 🙂
I guess the office buildings were built after the old overpass was no longer in use? It seems so close to the buildings.
We have quite a few overpasses to nowhere in Baltimore, but mostly they’re in places where they decided to save the neighborhood instead of building the highway. The most famous is the four lane section of US 40 that is highway for about 1.5 miles before ending in a spectacular overpass to nowhere. Would have connected I-95 and I-70 if it had been finished.
I’ve not seen a bridge to nowhere like that before. I take it there is no way to get onto teh overpass by car!
Thats interesting. It looks a little strange!
Def. a bridge to no where! Amazing how they left it like that. LOL
My mind will be twirling in circles figuring out those 3 signs altogether 😛
Great photo – the mind boggles at the logic in this!
That is so clean and bright and wonderful.
I should clarify. This overpass used to be part of an existing highway that was rerouted and partially demolished, so there are a few pieces like this that were orphaned as a result.
Great capture. So many interesting patterns in the photo.
the sad remains of a bygone highway. Great pic.
Hmmm. interesting. Wonder what they’ll do with it?
