RIVER CROSSING: I WANT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU focuses on the cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento in California, USA.

The two selected names will become the name of public dock in either Sacramento or West Sacramento. The public docks face each other across the Sacramento River between Tower Bridge and the I-Street Bridge.

The docks have played a vital role in the history of Yolo and Sacramento Counties. They were points of entry where people and goods arrived. During the California Gold Rush, the docks were located in the last navigable stretch of the Sacramento River. If passengers decided to stay, they abandoned their boats and purposefully sunk them to the bottom of the river. To this day, layers of sunken boats remain underneath the docks.
