Also see . . . Kennedy Tunnel - Oakland Wiki. The Kennedy (aka ‘Inter-County’ or ‘Broadway’) Tunnel (1903–c. 1940) was a single-bore tunnel connecting Oakland with Contra Costa County. Begun in 1870 by Chinese laborers using pick and shovel, the tunnel opened in 1903. Its purpose was twofold: to provide a safer alternative to the dangerously steep roads over the Oakland-Berkeley Hills, and to encourage Contra Costa residents to come shop in Oakland.
