Coronado Bridge Has Birthday

Real Estate Agent with The Mills Team

The Coronado Bridge, that leads us, living in San Diego, effortlessly to Coronado, turns forty years old today. The Coronado Bridge was opened in 1969 and has been paid in full by San Diego residents and tourists.

The $1.00 toll was collected until 2002, even though it was paid off by 1986. The reason for the extended toll was due to those who had purchased their piece of Coronado real estate and their fear that by discontinuing the toll, traffic to the island would substantially increase. Turns out they were right.  Traffic has increased by approximately twenty percent since 2002.

The cost of the bridge was nearly fifty million dollars in state construction bonds and is able to withstand around thirty thousand cars on a daily basis. However, nowadays there are around eighty thousand cars traveling across the bridge daily.

Happy Birthday Coronado Bridge.
