September 3, 1924


Blue line plan with maps. Sheet size: 54.5x74.5 cm (21½x29½").

Blue line plan of the bridge, with a location map showing where it was to be built, and a key map of the San Francisco Bay Area north to Sacramento and Marysville. 
The Delta Bridge Corporation was formed in December 1922, and in 1923 was granted a  license to build and operate the bridge. This license was later assigned to the American Toll Bridge Company - notabely these plans still  note “Delta Bridge Corporation Owner”.
The original structure was completed in 1926 by the American Toll Bridge Company (Aven Hanford and Oscar Klatt), who went on to build the original span of the Carquinez Bridge. The bridge was opened on 1 January 1926 as a connecting link on the coast-to-coast Victory Highway. Hanford and Klatt, officials with the Rodeo-Vallejo Ferry Company, had organized the American Toll Bridge Company in 1923, which built the bridge at a cost of greater than US $2,000,000 (equivalent to $29,410,000 in 2018).
