"Another tough highway stretch"

80 is never a fun stretch to drive on, and Richmond is not a particularly enjoyable town to visit, or to drive in. Put the two together, and you find yourself in a bit of a traffic mess. Congestion certainly builds here, whether you are commuting from Contra Costa County into San Francisco or returning to the South Bay from Tahoe on a Sunday night (and deemed 680 to be just as bad). The connection with the Richmond Bridge and 580 certainly doesn't help the situation.

Furthermore, the highway takes you through Richmond - arguably one of the worst towns in the Bay Area. Run-down at best, Richmond has Oakland's impoverished vibe, without the culture to go hand-in-hand.

To be fair, while the traffic is bad here, nothing can top Oakland's maze, and the views of the bay are pretty stellar.
  • Good views
  • Affordable town
  • Sketchy town
  • Bad traffic
  • Some confusion in navigation
