The infrastructure in Oakland is extensive and very effective.  There are several major highways that run through Oakland, including the Nimitz Freeway, the one where the double-deck portion collapsed during the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.  The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge also suffered a partial collapse during the 1989 earthquake.   There are two underwater tunnels, called the Webster and Posey tubes, that connect downtown Oakland with the main island of Alameda.  The mass transit system is very intricate.  Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) runs from Pleasanton to San Francisco with many different stations for commuters.1

The climate in Oakland is fairly mild with Mediterranean-type temperatures, staying fairly even throughout the year. The average temperature runs from record highs of 109 to record lows of 26; however, the temperature averages out to 67 throughout the year.  Oakland’s temperatures are between San Francisco’s and San Jose.  Regardless, Oakland will get the maritime fog since it is situated directly across the Bay from the Golden Gate Bridge, making it cooler in the summer.  Fortunately it is far enough inland that the fog will burn off by midday giving way to sunny afternoons.  The milder temperatures help to make Oakland a favorable place to live, particularly with the redevelopment projects that have been taking place in West Oakland.
