Admiral Clarey Bridge


Admiral Clarey Bridge

Admiral Clarey Bridge is an automobile causeway providing access to Ford Island, a US Navy installation situated in the middle of Pearl Harbor. The causeway bridge was completed and opened in 1998, named the Admiral Clarey Bridge after former CinCPac, Admiral Bernard A. Clarey.

Prior to the bridge being built, vehicle access to Ford Island was provided via ferryboat. Two ferries served the island, the older YFB 83 and newer YFB 87, both powered by diesel engines. The letters "YFB" stand for "Yard Ferry Boat". The ferries were operated by US Navy personnel. Access to the island was restricted to military personnel, military dependents, and their invited guests.
