Shown in circa 1935 is the Yolo Causeway. Built in 1916 for 400,000 dollars, the 3.2-mile-long span possessed one lane for each direction. Its construction ended the alienation between the San Francisco Bay area and Sacramento Valley that occured every winter with the innundation of the Yolo floodplain. In 1928, it became part of the Lincoln Highway and was rebuilt into two spans in 1962.
