1. Hyde Street Pier Was Part of Highway 101 Marker
Inscription. Before the Golden Gate Bridge was built, the only way to drive north from San Francisco was to cross the Bay on a ferryboat. The Golden Gate Ferry began service to Sausalito in 1922, and Hyde Street Pier officially became part of Route 101, the state's "Redwood Highway." When the bridge was opened in 1937, it of course became the highway link and the Hyde Street ferries were soon shut down.
