Richmond Harbor, on the E shore of San Francisco Bay 1.5 miles N of Southampton Shoal Light, includes the port facilities to Point San Pablo.
A Federal project provides for a depth of 45 feet in Southampton Shoal Channel and in the maneuvering area off Richmond Long Wharf, thence 38 feet in the channels leading to the port facilities at the Port of Richmond, to a point about 2,000 feet in Sante Fe Channel, thence 30 feet in the remainder of Sante Fe Channel and the turning basin. The channel is well marked by navigational aids. A 10,000-foot training wall is S of the dredged channel and extends W from Brooks Island.
A Federal project further provides for an approach area 32 feet deep to the wharves at Point Orient and Point San Pablo.
A security zone has been established around the Chevron Long Wharf. A restricted area extends 0.3 mile offshore at Molate Point, site of a Navy fuel depot 0.8 mile N of Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.
The 21,343-foot Richmond-San Rafael Highway Bridge, 8.8 miles above the Golden Gate Bridge, is one of the longest fixed high level double deck bridges. The E 970 foot fixed channel span clearance is 135 feet; the W fixed span has a 1,000 foot opening with a clearance of 185 feet.
