Toll Bridge Program Oversight Committee

The Toll Bridge Program Oversight Committee, or TBPOC, was established by the state Legislature to oversee the replacement of the east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and other projects included in the state Toll Bridge Seismic Retrofit Program.

The committee’s responsibilities include:

  • Review and approval of contract bid documents
  • Review and resolution of project issues
  • Evaluation and approval of project change orders and claims
  • Issuing quarterly progress reports to the Legislature

The three-member TBPOC includes MTC and BATA’s Executive Director, Caltrans’ statewide Director and the Executive Director of the California Transportation Commission.

Each of the Bay Area’s seven state-owned toll bridges is included in the Toll Bridge Seismic Retrofit Program:

  • Antioch Bridge
  • Benicia-Martinez Bridge
  • Carquinez Bridge
  • Dumbarton Bridge
  • Richmond-San Rafael Bridge
  • San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge
  • San Mateo-Hayward Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge, owned and operated by the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, is not included in the state Toll Bridge Seismic Retrofit Program.

The Bay Area's toll bridges have become a defining characteristic of our region.
