There are Seven State owned and operated Toll Bridges in California. The toll bridges are the largest and most complicated bridges in the State. Nowhere in the world have bridges as complex as these been seismically retrofitted. An estimated $2.6 billion is alloted for this Seismic Retrofit Program. This Program also includes the replacement of the East Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, the Toll Bridge Program is also highly involved in implementing the Regional Measure One Program. Regional Measure One was approved by the San Francisco Bay Area voters in November 1988, authorizing the increase of Bay Area bridge tolls. Projects in the Regional Measure One Program include the construction of a new westbound Benicia-Martinez Bridge; the construction of a new westbound Carquinez Bridge; West Trestle and Fender replacement and Deck Rehabilitation of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge; and Widening of the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge.
