Oakland Bay Bridge Vertical Clearance

We'll be leaving San Fran in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone has taken the Bay Bridge east with a MH? We're a few inches over 13 ft and the eastbound clearance headed towards Oakland looks a little low. Anyone know what the min. vertical height is?

The Eastbound direction is the lower level, which originally was used by trains before it was converted to auto and truck traffic, so unless your MH is bigger than a train, it'll fit just fine.

I believe the guidelines are that anything under 16' must be
marked as such, and anything under 13'6" must be marked on
ANY and ALL roads that could lead to it to provide warning.
You will not find anything under 13'6" on any major road in
the US.

That sounds about right especially any Interstate, FDR set out strict rules in order to qualify as an Interstate Highway to receive Federal funding.
