Robin Williams Tunnel signs set up

Fans of Robin Williams will now always have a way to remember the late comedian in his San Francisco home, and it’ll only take a short drive to do so.

Signs have been installed to officially signal the Robin Williams Tunnel, a tunnel on U.S. Highway 101 that connects the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County in San Francisco. A California Assembly unanimously voted to name the tunnel after Williams last year. The archways to the tunnel also serve as a reminder of Williams, already having been painted as rainbows and offering a tie to the colorful suspenders worn by Williams’ character on Mork & Mindy. The tunnel previously had no official name but was known locally as the Waldo Tunnel because it lies on the Waldo Grade.

A sign has been posted on each side of the tunnel bearing Williams’ names, both privately funded according to SFGate.

Williams, who died on Aug. 11, 2014 at the age of 63, lived much of his life in the Bay Area, and a private memorial service was held for him there following his death. For those unable to see the signs in person, check out some photos of them below.
