SAN FRANCISCO (WTNH)– The late Robin Williams is being honored in his San Francisco home.

Signs have finally been installed to signal the Robin Williams Tunnel. The tunnel is on U.S. Highway 101 that connects the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County in San Francisco.

According to the SFGate, the rainbow-arched tunnel was unofficially known as the Waldo Tunnel.

The $3,000 signs on each side of the tunnel were paid for using private donations, the California Department of Transportation told SFGate last summer.

Williams died on Aug. 11, 2014 at the age of 63 and lived in Marin County.
