Leimert Bridge is located in the Oakmore neighborhood of Oakland, California. It spans 357 ft (109 m) and is 117 ft (36 m) high above Sausal Creek. It is a cement and steel arch bridge. When it was built in 1926, it was the largest single-span bridge on the West Coast.
Realtor Walter H. Leimert built the bridge in order to develop the Oakmore Heights area. The Park Boulevard #18 street car line spurred off the Key System and crossed the bridge connecting Oakmore to central Oakland until the late 1940s; the streetcar power lines were then converted to street lighting.
It became a City of Oakland landmark in 1980.
Hiking Trails that travel under the bridge, can be accessed from the Sausal Creek train heads at Dimond Park and off Benevides Ave.
