This is one of the two "Rainbow Tunnels". In the Summer of '66 when Flower Children were coming to San Francisco, a Cal DOT manager responsible for tunnel maintenance had a few buckets of paint of various colors left over from other jobs. He laudably joined in the spirit of the times and instructed his men to paint these rainbows over Highway 101. Even more incredibly, the rainbows have been maintained through thick and thin for over 40 years.
