SAN FRANCISCO – JUNE 30: Traffic leaves San Francisco at the beginning of the 4th of July holiday weekend on June 30, 2006 in San Francisco, California. Despite the rising cost of gasoline, daily gasoline demand was up 0.9 percent from a year ago. According to AAA about 40.7 million Americans will travel over 50 miles or more from home during the 4th of July holiday, an increase of about 1.2 percent over last year.

When the Bay Area was placed in quarantine the roads were pretty bare.  With the state slowly opening there are more cars on the road which looks more like the “good ole days”.   One thing to keep in mind if you will be back on the road as the state is slowly re-opening is that starting Monday tolls will resume on the express lanes on various freeways/highways across the Bay Area:

  • 580 in Alameda County
  • 680 in Contra Costa County
  • 237 in Santa Clara County
  • 680 southbound over the Sunol grade in Alameda and Santa Clara counties.

Don’t forget your FasTrak transponders for most of the express lanes and that motorcycles and carpoolers can still use southbound 680 one without FasTrak device.

The toll rates will be displayed between 5am to 8pm.  The rates can fluctuate depending on how congested the roadway is.
