Did you know that U.S. Highway 101 and State Route 1 both END at the north abutment of the Bridge and 1,000 feet south of the Bridge toll plaza, making the bridge itself NOT officially part of Highway 101 or State Route 1? The Bridge is therefore not considered part of the State Highway System, but considered part of the National Highway System.
